Welcome to NOVA Employment...
NOVA is a supported employment program that offers specialist job seeking assistance and post placement support. We find jobs in the general community, at award wage. NOVA works exclusively with people who have a disability or significant barriers to work and we have an excellent record of success and meaningful career development. Staff from our Campbelltown office also support people who are deaf or hearing impaired. NOVA is not a sheltered workshop, or 'business service'
Working with us is not an act of charity - it's a sound business decision made by hundreds of employers every year

Sponsorship and Donations
Each year NOVA assists many hundreds of people to enter the workforce
. To do this we find, train and provide material support to dozens of staff. This costs a lot of money and NOVA funding from the Australian Government to carry this work out however, there is still enormous unmet need.
In 2002, NOVA began a formal program of fundraising
. We now receive more than $100,000 annually in donations
and goods. Our sponsors
range from the very large (our genuine thanks to Mr. Gates and Microsoft) to the very small - annual membership of NOVA's association costs $3.
The cost of taking a person with an intellectual disability
, finding suitable employment
and providing appropriate post-placement support is approximately $7000. Every little bit helps. If you'd like to support our work financially we offer the following benefits:
- As a registered charity, donations over $2 are tax-deductible (check with your accountant)
- All donations over $10 are listed on our Champions Board
- Corporate sponsors receive recognition on our website(s) and on other promotional material where applicable
