Social Enterprise - the case against

The case for aiming high on behalf of people with disability is strong and is directly related to my grief over society's reliance on social enterprises, known in Australia as Australian Disability Enterprises. I'm turning to video blogs to explain what I mean.

Please see 'Social Enterprise - the case against' and 'Aiming high' to start you off. My book The Ten Demandments goes into this in more detail.

We want real jobs for people with disability. By this I mean work alongside and with the same conditions and expectations as their non-disabled peers. The number of hours need to be sufficient to embed the worker into the organisation such that they become a valued member of the team, not just the 'disabled guy' that comes in once a week. Sufficient hours also leads to sufficient pay, which, in turn leads to independent living.

If you, too, believe people with disabilty deserve more, escpecially when it comes to employment opportunities, do get in touch.
