The value of employing people with a disability was reinforced by a moving address by distinguished lawyer and businessman David Gonski and a powerful film at a JewishCare breakfast in Sydney.

30 members of the community attended the breakfast briefing at the Vibe Hotel City hosted by JewishCare and SEDS (a disability employment agency).

David Gonski outlined the benefits to the employee, their family and the company by providing employment to those with disabilities.

A movie on the subject was screened and produced by Droga5, an advertising company that does employ a person with a disability.

JewishCare’s Connexions program assists children and young people with disabilities to reach their potential. It does this by assisting people to participate community life and build relationships.
