ASENZ

Are Advisors for Supported Employment in New Zealand.

They retain the ASENZ brand but are now a committee within the New Zealand Disability Support Network (NZDSN).

Their mission is to provide a high profile forum for the promotion, establishment and development of Supported Employment Services for people with disabilities in New Zealand, through information, networking, research and policy advocacy.

Supported Employment is a concept that looks to find ways to assist people disadvantaged in the labour market due to a disability to reach their career aspirations and to improve and expand inclusive employment opportunities and services.

The process involves more than just finding a job for a person and Supported Employment practitioners provide various services to two key client groups: 1) People with disabilities. 2) Employers.
