iCare Disability Employment Centre (iDEC)
iCare Disability Employment Centre (iDEC) is the latest community project established ans steered by iCare Community Services Inc. Since iCares’ inception, the aim has always been to change and transform the lives of people with a disability. iDEC will definitely achieve that. iDEC is an employment linkage and capacity building project for the people with a disability and includes an Op Shop, Laundromat and Free Clothing Hamper support services that will be manned and operated by people with a disability.
The impetus behind this project is that we wanted to create an assimilation employment facility where people with a disability were in the majority rather than minority. They will receive training of the highest caliber in various employment capacities and categories such as administrative, executive, labourers etc. We expect that when they leave our facility they will be well poised to competitively vie for equivalent positions in the regular work world.
We provide jobs such as:
- Op Shop Retail
- Online Op-Shop coordinator
- Alterations & Sewing
- Pricing and Tagging
- Ironing and Sorting
The iCare Disability employment centre provides meaningful employment opportunities for people with a disability. Our supported employment program allows you to learn new skills, earn a wage, make friends and reach your career goals.
While we understand the importance of providing people with disability the opportunity to work in an open employment environment, some people require more support than others. Supported employment allows you to work with support while still making a meaningful contribution to the workforce.
We service a broad spectrum of national and local clients and have a range of work and training options designed to help you reach your goals, feel part of a team and earn an income from day one.
The services we provide include:
- Laundry lockers and Dry cleaning
- Op Shop
- Pick and Pack
