How does Life Directions engage with jobseekers?
The jobseeker* drops-in to
Life Directions (LD) or makes
a scheduled appointment.
*LD works with jobseekers 15 years and older living with a self-disclosed or diagnosed disability.
LD works with the jobseeker to
develop a Return to Work Action Plan.

career development. This includes:
• needs and resource
• goal setting
