3SA provides supported employment for over 45 people managing various disabilities, across it's retail opshop and grounds maintenance enterprises.
The Repsychlers Opshop, Ballina Junktion and the Grounds Maintenance crew all operate as viable 'profit for purpose' enterprises - investing profits back into employing workers on a supported wage.
The active participation of workers living with a range of physical disabilities and mental health issues has a far-reaching positive impact on families and the local community. Along with competitive wages, supported employees keep valuable social contact, while gaining skills & experience similar to any other mainstream workplace.
Our diverse range of workers are individually supported to gain confidence, practical jobskills and a work ethic which they also take home & into the community. Many report the positive effects of their employment, to live a fuller more inclusive life when actively earning a part of their income.
