The Fit For Work Project is a two-year project funded by the Tasmanian Community Fund.

The project works with young jobseekers (aged between 16 and 25 years) in the Devonport region to identify additional supports they need to enter the workforce.

A full time project worker works intensively with participants for 6 to 12 months to address health and wellbeing issues, build relationships and social connections and participate in soft employment skills training.

The project aims to support participants to rebuild their health, confidence and lost social capital, providing them with increased opportunity to break the cycle of welfare dependency.

Utilising an evidence based assessment tool, participants are assessed and assisted to address a range of life issues that may be impacting on their capacity to become work ready and access training, education and/or employment.

All referrals into the project must come through local employment providers (e.g. jobactive or Disability Employment Services).
