Ticket to Work network in Sydney

Ticket to Work logo

The National Disability Coordination Officer Program is looking to start up Ticket to Work network for the Sydney region (Inner Sydney, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, St George-Sutherland). We are looking for stakeholders who may be interested in joining this network. It is so important that the disability sector works together to improve the transitions for people with disability, especially as we prepare for the NDIS roll out in our area and the changes to post-school programs. Further information can be found at the following website:


What will it involve?

How local Ticket to Work networks function varies according to the different regions. The networks operate with a ‘collective impact’ approach, sharing goodwill, expertise and resources to solve complex cross-sectoral problems.

What’s happening?

We have started meeting with members of the new network and welcome anyone else to join who may be interested. We are looking for a broad representation of stakeholders in this network to make it a success.
If you are interested in this new Ticket to Work Sydney network please email Vera (vera.laptev@sydney.edu.au) or Jessica (jessica.buhne@sydney.edu.au).
