Jigsaw is a social enterprise that trains and transitions people with disability into award wage employment.
We believe people prepare best for work, through work.
COVID-19 updates for participants and families
Jigsaw has a very simple vision for the future; it is an Australia in which people with disability are fully included in the workforce.
Jigsaw’s mission is to support people with disability to successfully secure mainstream employment at a rate exceeding the national benchmark, through the targeted intervention of a work-based training program.
The insight that Jigsaw was built around is the belief that people prepare best for work, through work.
Unlike so many other supports in the disability sector, Jigsaw was designed to give people direct training and employment opportunities in a thriving business, to break the cycle so many people with disability face – of never gaining entry to the workforce, in order to be able to build the skills required to enter the workforce.
At the heart of the Jigsaw model is a thriving document and data management business, providing a range of high-quality commercial services to corporate and government clients including Westpac, Coca Cola Amatil, Northern Beaches Council and many more.
The business undertakes this trading activity in order to create a training pathway for people with disability to prepare for and secure award wage employment at their own pace.
