Local Work Assist
Success Stories

The MWLFS team has successfully supported many employers and their employees to stay in the jobs they love through our Work Assist Service.

Real life Work Assist Example #1

An employee was working in a trade assistant role with a local business. His employer was keen to offer him an apprenticeship but was worried that he may not be able to complete the training component of the trade qualification.
MWLFS supported this employee to link with an allied health specialist resulting in a diagnosis of dyslexia.  Modifications were made and alternative training resources provided. Assistance through Post Placement Support was also provided, offering mentoring and role modelling to the employee resulting in increased confidence, added maturity, better communication and problem solving skills.
This employee is now capable of liaising with his employer and trainer independently and is nearing the end of his apprenticeship.

Real life Work Assist Example #2

An employee with a mental health condition was struggling to meet her employers expectations during periods of poor mental health. The employee loves her job and was concerned that she wasn’t performing to her employers’ expectations. MWLFS was able to link the employee to specialist support services, supported her to communicate with her employer and helped build her confidence by offering reassurance on-the-job.
The employee feels more confident knowing that she has support and is able to better manage her mental heath with ongoing support.
