OUR VISION

Fundamentally, Jigsaw provides a unique approach to bridge the gap between people with disability and the business industry with its primary focus on enabling and empowering employers to take on people with disability. This directly influences how people with disability are integrated into the broader community and workforce, rather than being segregated into disability-constrained employment opportunities and organisations. Businesses will not hire people with disabilities because they’re looking to hire a disabled person, instead they will hire people with disability because they will have the barriers removed and the disability does not matter.

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
