The Andrews Labor Government is making sure that even more Victorian jobseekers can access the support they need to find and keep a job. Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll today visited Sunshine Hospital to announce $10 million for 22 Jobs Victoria partners – which will allow them to help more than a thousand jobseekers into work. Jobs Victoria partners provide support for thousands of jobseekers facing barriers to employment, helping to prepare, place and support them into long-term sustainable work. Sunshine Hospital is part of the Western Health network of hospitals that has employed more than 60 local jobseekers with the support of Jobs Victoria. Westgate Community Initiatives Group, one of the 22 Jobs Victoria partners allocated new funding, has worked with the Western Health network to support jobseekers into roles at Sunshine Hospital. During the visit, Mr Carroll saw firsthand the work that some of the former jobseekers are undertaking at the hospital …
Funding has been allocated to the Brotherhood of St Laurence, a Victoria partner, with other organisations:
- Brotherhood of St Laurence – Dandenong-Casey project
- Brotherhood of St Laurence – Whittlesea project
