National Panel of Assessors (NPA)

Supporting people with a disability in the workplace

The National Panel of Assessors is part of the Department of Social Services' Disability Employment Services and provides a range of assessment services.

At IMPACT Community Services, our team of Allied Health Professionals conduct assessments across all the Employment Service Areas in Queensland. They determine the level of support an employee requires in the workplace.

They conduct two types of assessments:

  • SWS (Supported Wage System): support for employees with a disability who are not able to perform jobs at the same capacity as any other employee.
  • Ongoing Support Assessment (OSA): support for an employee with a disability to maintain ongoing employment.

To find out more, visit the government’s JobAccess Service.

IMPACT really helped me

IMPACT really helped me

I found it difficult to get a home because I had no rental history. But IMPACT helped us out a lot, printed out all the papers we had to sign, and they even took them in for us.
