Ramping Up 4 Work is an NDIS Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) initiative developed by Limbs 4 Life, and supported by the Government of Western Australia, Department of Communities.
Ramping Up 4 Work aims to encourage, empower and motivate people experiencing limb loss to gain and/or maintain employment, through the provision of information, advice and one-on-one peer mentoring. This will be delivered through face-to-face and telephone support provided by Peer Mentors.
The aim of the project is to link amputees who have never worked, who want to return to work, or who need to change their work, with the support of an amputee trained as a Job Motivating Mentor (JMM).
The JMM’s will guide you through what you need to know about employment today’s job market. Our JMM’s are all amputees who volunteer their services to mentor, support and guide you - the job-seeker.
Ramping Up 4 Work will be offered in Western Australia and provide four streams of employment assistance.
Ramping Up 4 Work will benefit employers, peer mentors and people living with limb loss.
Limbs 4 Life has developed a range of Ramping Up 4 Work resources including manuals, templates, planning materials and fact sheets to assist mentors and mentees. People wishing to become mentors will be provided with opportunities to take part in training, which will be delivered in various parts of Western Australia over the coming year. People seeking employment support will be matched to a mentor so that they can build a relationship aimed at enhancing workplace participation outcomes.
Along with resources for you as an amputee looking for work, we have developed a range of fact sheets. These include:
If you are interested in getting involved, either as a mentor or as a person keen to be matched, contact Limbs 4 Life on 1300 78 2231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
