EPIC Assist - previously Ability Tasmania Group

Ability Tasmania Group Inc. Is an incorporated association and registered charity. The organization has responsibility for three services, developed since it began in response to the needs of people with disabilities.

Ability Employment

In 1994 Ability Employment began as an employment service for people with intellectual disabilities. Starting with 5 clients and a staff of 1, it has now grown to cover all disability groups with a client base of 310 and a staffing level of 77.

Ability Employment now has four offices accross Tasmania, providing ongoing support for our clients. Ability Employment takes pride in assisting people with high and challenging support needs. Ability Employment is Tasmania's only Five Star Service, a rating given by the Department of Employment, Education and Workplace Relations.

North West Contractors

In 1998 Ability Tasmania Group Inc. began North West Contractors, a small gardening crew, assisting people who had lost their jobs through the closure of the local sheltered workshop. This has now grown to be a significant business arm and employs a number of people with disabilities, from Launceston through to Smithton. Identifying new growth areas, NW Contractors now provides labour services to business as well as engineering support to a large manufacturer.

In 2004 it began a home maintenance business, furthering the employment opportunities for people with disabilities to engage in skilled work. Ability Work Skills In January 2004, Ability Life Skills began (later becoming Ability Work Skills), assisting people in non vocational programs that utilised individual funding packages. This has expanded from a one off-contract with the state government to a program that assists a growing number of clients.

In 2009 the focus of Ability Life Skills altered, resulting in the name change to Ability Work Skills. The primary aim of this arm of Ability is to provide vocational skills and training to those entering the workplace for the first time. We are able to work closely with schools and other stakeholders in developing a customised transition program for the individual client.Disability Care
