An Australia where people with a physical or mental health injury, illness or disability have a greater opportunity to work. Get involved
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.

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.
