  • Civic Crew


    Our award-winning Civic Crew model assists organisations to employ people with disability on a short or long-term basis. Civic Crew was established to support employers experiencing difficulties in hiring and retaining people with disability, and to support people with disability who want to be more involved with, and work within, their own community.

Working as part of a team, you will be provided with the support and training you need. Civic Crew is ideal for those who are wanting to take their next step towards open employment, but who benefit from additional supports.

    SLES & Work Experience

    We work with individuals, families and schools to offer work experience and SLES programs that introduce school leavers and young people with disability to a variety of workplace environments, supporting with the transition from high school or day program and into the workforce.

    Thanks to our unique workplaces and partnerships, we can provide hands-on experience in warehouse, cafe and corporate environments, that complement classroom learning and get you ready for your very first career steps.

  • Sarah’s Story


    Sarah Elliot may only have three per cent vision in one eye, but that hasn’t stopped her pursuing her dream to become a chef. Today, Sarah is proud of her position as the first blind female Chef de Partie in New South Wales, working at Civic’s Nowra-based Kitchen & Catering social enterprise.

    “Because I live with significant  vision impairment, many commercial kitchens didn’t want to support me. They didn’t see a future for a blind chef.”

    That changed when Sarah met the team at Civic, where she was employed at Civic’s cafe in Nowra and supported to learn new skills in the kitchen. Not only is Sarah now a qualified chef, she’s also a qualified vocational educator teaching others with disability to cook at Civic Kitchen & Catering right here in the Shoalhaven.

    ” The Civic team  have given me the opportunity to grow professionally, really believe in myself, to build up my competence and to see my dreams come to life.”
