This report of DES Outcome Rates by Disability Type provides information about the performance of DES providers in each Employment Services Area by primary disability groupings. The report aims to help people with disability, family, carers or others choose a DES provider.
There are a number of factors that should be taken into account when choosing a DES Provider, such as the location of their office in relation to public transport and your home, their Star Ratings or what they say about the services they offer on Connections for Quality. This Outcome Rates by Disability Type report is just one piece of information to help you decide which provider might be best for you. You can find out more about your local DES providers, including their Star Ratings and Connections for Quality, on the Australian JobSearch website.
If you have any questions please contact the Department of Social Services via email: DES_Performance_Modelling_Evaluation@dss.gov.au
