Supported Employment


DARE Industries is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS) to provide employment and training in a supported environment for up to 65 people with a disability.

People with a wide range of needs are employed in various jobs in woodwork, packaging, book covering, landscaping and grounds maintenance.

A range of innovative products are manufactured by employees of DARE including hot mix rakes, mining products such as stope sticks and mining blocks, hardwood stakes and pegs and 'made to order' products.

Employees are provided with vocational and non-vocational training and support to assist them to achieve their vocational goals. Employees work at either the DARE Industries workshop or with DARE Grounds Maintenance which are both based in Springwood.
