Advocacy

When you have an invisible illness, your sickness isn’t your biggest problem. What you end up battling more than anything else, every single day, is the judgement by other people

We actively pursue our vision for people of all abilities to have the opportunity and options for meaningful employment.


But we want to do more.

We want to create a movement for change by activating the broader community to engage with our vision

Invisible Illnesses Inc advocates for the potential and value people living with an invisible illness can offer. Through our business connections we encourage employers to harness this potential in their own organisations.

By creating inclusive workplaces, we can gather momentum for our movement for change.

 

With each positive change in mindset about what a person living with invisible illness can achieve, we hope our movement will permeate through business culture towards a more inclusive society.

At Invisible Illnesses we lead this advocacy by example. To provide employment opportunities for people living with an invisible illness, we are constantly looking to grow our offering, to offer wider support, more work sampling, more work experience options and further employment opportunities within our own organisation.

 

We plan to double the availability of our programs by 2025, offering more participants the opportunity to grow their skills, access employment opportunities and lead an independent and fulfilling life.

2024 we aim to implement our Empowerment to Employment program enabling us to identify clients’ needs and begin building their life-skills and confidence in preparation for their transition to employment.

 

One of the other aims for 2024 is advocating the awareness of Assistance Dogs and how important they are to many of us for different reasons.


Partnering with businesses that embrace our philosophy and intention is key to enhancing our offering and furthering our vision.

If you believe in our movement for change, join us. You can make a difference in many ways–volunteer, donate, shop with us, work with us or do business with us.
