Ridleyton Greek Home for the Aged is a finalist in the 2018 HESTA Aged Care Awards


Recognising that everyone deserves the opportunity to develop new skills and participate in the workforce, Ridleyton Greek Home for the Aged developed an internal program that trains and employs people with intellectual disabilities.

Underpinning the idea for the program was the desire to build a more stable workforce that embraces inclusivity and helps everyone, no matter their perceived ability to reach their full potential.


Underpinning the program was the desire to build a more stable workforce that helps everyone reach their full potential.

The employment program was designed in collaboration with local disability service providers including Equals International, who helped select applicants and advised on the project structure and implementation.

Four trainees were selected to participate and were supported in attaining their certificate III in aged care, while also receiving hands-on training from experienced employees. The program demonstrates that by supporting people with disabilities to reach their full potential, they can have a meaningful impact in the workforce and the aged care sector.
