An Australia where people with a physical or mental health injury, illness or disability have a greater opportunity to work.
The Collaborative Partnership is a national system-wide collaboration between the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Working together we can break down barriers in our systems and culture to enable more Australians to engage in good work.
Annual social and economic impacts of work incapacity in Australia:
People unable to work due to ill health, injury or disability and received income support
People accessed employer provided leave entitlements for work incapacity
Spent on income support
in one year
Note: estimates from 2015/16
We’re driving positive change in these areas:
The time is now to make real and sustainable change, to ensure that no person is left behind.

Every system, sector and leader has a role to play to ensure this happens.
