Our approach to supporting our customers includes more than recognising a single characteristic, but also the intersection of those which may influence a person’s experiences, goals and challenges.
As people move through different life stages, we support stakeholders like government and community networks to ensure their services are relevant and stop people falling through the cracks. Drawing from broad experience we are able to see people’s current needs but also predict what may affect them next. This means we can deliver both an intervention at the right time, or a preventative service to support continual development.
MAX is a confident thought leader when it comes to putting equality and the experience of the individual first.
MAX possesses a number of valued credentials from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), Australian Disability Network, and Diversity Council of Australia (DCA), allowing us to work in different areas and support people from different backgrounds across our services.
At MAX we know that a diverse workforce fosters innovative thinking. Our workplaces celebrate and promote diversity in backgrounds, ideas, work styles and perspectives. We welcome people with disability and accommodate staff with additional needs. We also employ and provide career pathways and mentoring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
As one of the largest providers of disability employment services in Australia, our work in finding jobs for people with disability and improving disability confidence for employer partners, is well established.
We deliver specialised assessment services to schools in Victoria supporting children with intellectual disability or severe language disorders through our Program for Students with Disability.
We also provide Certificate-level vocational training courses to students looking to develop a career working in the disability space, and our Health Service Officers across the country are trained to support our customers with disability.
