If you have an injury, illness
or disability, we can help
We're here for you
At APM we’re committed to helping people change their lives for the better, whatever challenges come our way.
Especially when it comes to helping someone with an injury, health condition or disability finding a meaningful job.
We might not be able to meet in person right now, but that isn’t stopping us from helping thousands of job seekers every week through the Disability Employment Services program.
If you’re eligible we can help connect you with the local employers who are still hiring people right now.
We can also help prepare you for work so when more businesses reopen their doors, you will be well placed to be a great addition to their team.
Our local teams are still here to help you overcome challenges to finding a job. Contact us today to see how we can help you.
