Support for Australian Apprentices with disability
The Australian Government provides additional support to Australian Apprentices with disability to
help them reach their full potential as skilled workers. Disabled Australian Apprentice
Wage Support (DAAWS) is an incentive payable to an employer who employs an Australian
Apprentice who satisfies the disability eligibility criteria. Assistance is also available through the
Employment Assistance Fund which helps people with disability and mental health
conditions purchase a range of work related modifications and services.
