MS Queensland has led the collaboration of 11 Progressive Neurological Disease organisations, called The NeuroCare Network - we are working together to provide better outcomes for Queenslanders living with progressive neurological and neuromuscular disease.
The NeuroCare Network is hosting a Q&A regarding Employment Retention for people living with Progressive Neurological Disease and carers, highlighting the challenges and opportunities of employment retention for people living with PND and carers, and to open discussion and continue to action this issue throughout the implementation of the NDIS.
We are delighted that Valmae Rose will be our facilitator and that AHRC, Disability Discrimination Commissioner Alastair McEwin will be on the panel to share recommendations and action from the Willing to Work Report together with representative from the Assistant Minister for Social Services and Disability Services, Hon Jane Prentice office and Queensland Employment Minister, Hon Grace Grace and Lincoln Hopper representing The NeuroCare Network.
The Q&A will also share a selection of case studies from people living with PND and their employer and how they successfully maintain their employment and the benefits for the respective employers.
We shall also be promoting the benefits of maintaining people with PND and carers in work as a key response to dealing with an ageing workforce, skills challenges and highlighting the collective losses when someone is forced out of work prematurely.
Together with other members of Federal and State Government, NDIS, NDS, academics, employers, unions, disability employment providers we would be delighted to invite you to attend the Q&A The NeuroCare Network Employment Retention Q&A on Thursday 17 November 10am – 12pm, TAFE Brisbane Southbank Campus
