Interact Australia

With over 25 years of experience, Interact Australia work to promote social inclusion, health and wellbeing by empowering people to achieve their full potential.
As a values based not-for-profit organisation, we champion and support people with a disability in their choices, offering a range of person-centred supports, matched to meet unique circumstances and individual needs.
Interact offer both Individual support services (NDIS) and Disability Employment Services (DES) tailored to specific needs and future goals.
Meet one of our participants Sammy (pictured), who has a mild intellectual disability and epilepsy. Sammy joined Interact to help him transition from secondary school to an employment pathway. Sammy had a passion for woodworking so with his Recruitment Partners support, he secured a work placement with Timbercon. Sammy worked hard while learning the job, so Timbercon agreed to ongoing employment, and he has now started a traineeship. Interact continue to support Sammy in the workplace and he couldn’t be happier.
Sammy says; Interact gave me an opportunity to do a traineeship with Timbecon. They understood what I was into and when I went there I just went, like, mate – this is perfect! The amount of support they give me it’s just, wow, they’ve been helping me a lot!”
Joe, Sammy’s dad has been thrilled with Sammy’s new career and say’s “Interact give you all the support that is required but as a father… They do such a wonderful job and it’s overwhelming and fantastic.”
