National Disability Coordination Officer

What is the NDCO Program? It is a priority for the Australian
Government to assist people with disability enter tertiary education and
find a job in order to increase economic and social participation. The
NDCO program helps people with a disability access, and participate in,
tertiary education and subsequent employment through a national
network of NDCO’s. The Australian Government is committed to helping
people with a disability because there can be challenges finding a job or
continuing with education after secondary school. The NDCO program
aims to address those barriers by: Improving links between schools, universities, vocational education
and training organisations, job services and organisations that
support people with disabilities. Improving transitions between school/community and tertiary
education and finding a job. Improving participation in tertiary education and work.
How can the NDCO program help? NDCO’s work strategically with
stakeholders in their region to reduce barriers to participation, help
smooth transitions, build links and coordinate services for people with a
disability between education, training and employment. NDCO’s can: Establish or support links between local organisations to build
bridges between tertiary education institutions and job services in
order to help people with a disability transition from study to work. Work with educators, employers and other people in the community
to identify and address barriers to participation. Work with local stakeholders to help them implement policies that are
designed to help people with disabilities.

Armidale Disability Care Support Lookout

Point Lookout is the must-see destination for visitors to New England National Park. Perched on the edge of the Great Escarpment, it offers panoramic views across the World Heritage rainforest to the ocean in the distance.

At sunrise, the mist in the valley turns from orange to pink as the sun erupts above the distant horizon. It’s no wonder this is one of the most photographed sunrises on the NSW North Coast.

Accessible to all, Point lookout is a 200-metre walk from the carpark on a wheelchair-friendly track. Pack a picnic, have a barbeque and spend a few hours relaxing and admiring the view. Read about the wonders of the Gondwana rainforest, Aboriginal cultural heritage and the history of this unique location in the picnic shelter.

While you’re there, why not venture off to discover the rainforest below on the many walking tracks that start here?
