It was cause for celebration when JobAccess was recently named as a Zero Project Global Innovative Policy on Employment, Work and Vocational Education and Training.

Each year the Zero Project recognises the most Innovative Practices and Policies that improve the lives of persons with disabilities. In 2017, more than 1,000 disability experts from all over the world were involved in the selection process, with JobAccess recognised as one of 11 Innovative Policies. In particular, JobAccess was recognised for removing barriers to disability employment – by bringing a range of programs together into one comprehensive and accessible service and for working closely with stakeholders to ensure the service meets the needs of its users.
