Assisting members of the community return to the workforce after a brain injury.
The Vocational Intervention Program is a new initiative designed to achieve better work outcomes for people with brain injury by supporting and strengthening partnerships between employers, people with brain injury, their families, clinicians and vocational service providers.
Returning to the workforce following a brain injury is an important step towards rehabilitation, at CHESS we facilitate the coordination of services and support for people with brain injury who are either returning to existing work or those who wish to explore new employment opportunities.
This specialised support is free to both clients and employers participating in the VIP initiative with insurance for work training placements included. Our goal with this new program is to enhance the collaboration and sharing of knowledge across health and vocational service providers to better understand and support the local community.
There are two components of VIP:
- Fast Track – Assisting people following brain injury to return to their employer.
- New Track – Assisting people to explore future work opportunities with unpaid work & training placements
