For 41 years Brite Services, an Australian Disability Enterprise, has been providing a supported employment and training service for people with a disability. Brite is a group of up to 143 supported employees and 27 administrative and support staff.
Brite Services was formed when a dedicated group of parents/carers saw the need for a work place that not only acknowledged the universal need to be meaningfully employed, but saw the need to do so in an environment that supports the needs of people with varying abilities.
Brite understands the strengths and abilities of its employees and endeavours to provide them with the most appropriate structures, support mechanisms and resources available. This includes providing regular work skills and work place training; ranging from operating new semi-automated machines, participating in anti work-place bullying workshops to being an elected OHS representative, as well as offering a range of life skills and well-being programs. At Brite this translates into our employees enjoying a sense of pride and ownership of their workplace. Most importantly, working at Brite means belonging to a social community of long-term friendships.
Brite Services has embedded values that create an evolving, nurturing and supportive person-centred environment, enabling and facilitating personal growth and providing opportunities within the workplace to develop;
- On the job skills
- Further education and training
- Life skills
Brite Services affirms each individual’s life choices, including their capacity to enrich and enhance the community to which we all belong.
