Women’s Return to Work Program

Applications for the 2022 Return to Work Program are now open.

The Return to Work Program (the Program) is for women who have been unemployed for 30 days or more and intend to return to work within 6 months. 

The Program supports women through the development of a Return to Work Plan which may include the provision of funding to buy goods and services that will help reduce barriers to finding employment.

A Return to Work Coordinator will help participants develop a plan to find employment including linking them to a range of NSW Government support services. 

As part of the program, one-off grants of up to $5,000 will be made available to eligible women to purchase approved goods and services such as:

  • education and training
  • support material for courses
  • work necessities such as specialist clothing, equipment, IT
  • transportation costs
  • childcare/respite.

Funding is limited and priority will be given to eligible:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women
  • women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • women living in regional, rural and remote areas (beyond Greater Sydney)
  • women living with disability
  • women who are refugees
  • women over 50 years of age
  • young women leaving out-of-home care
  • women who are carers (provide care to another person who lives with a disability, medical condition, mental illness, or is frail and aged)
  • women who are victim-survivors of domestic and family violence.

Psychological First Aid

With our South Coast communities experiencing many adversities – such as fires, floods, and Covid-19 – in recent times, now more than ever people are requiring emotional comfort and support, as well as practical advice and assistance, in the face of these critical events.

Although most people experience distress following a disaster or critical incident, the majority will recover using existing coping strategies and social supports. As such, formal intervention in the immediate aftermath is generally not recommended. Rather PFA is internationally endorsed as the appropriate initial response. Underpinned by a person-centred and trauma-informed approach, the PFA workshop supports participants to:

  • develop skills in communicating with, and reducing the initial distress of, people affected by a critical event
  • support people to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment in the face of disaster, and utilise their own strengths and abilities to identify and address their own immediate needs
  • foster short-term adaptive functioning and build resilience
  • minimise the risk of further harm
  • identify those in need of further support
  • consider the importance of self-care when supporting others.

This workshop is interactive, encouraging participants to ask questions and engage in learning activities as well as share personal experiences and self-reflections. Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance, contributing to continual professional development.

Please circulate this training opportunity within your organisations and wider networks – supporting those impacted by a critical event requires a whole-community effort, so the more people we can engage with and offer this training to the better connected, resilient, and resourceful our South Coast communities will be in the face of adversity.
