The purpose of this resource sheet is to assess and summarise evidence on the effectiveness of programs relevant to increasing employment rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a disability. A total of 265 papers were reviewed—sourced from peer-reviewed journals published from 1990–2013, and reports and information obtained from government and non-government websites.

This resource sheet reviews the effectiveness of both Indigenous-specific and mainstream Australian employment programs, as well as international employment programs for Indigenous people with a disability. Where relevant, it also takes account of evaluations of employment programs for people with a disability that did not specifically report the results for Indigenous job seekers as they are likely to have some Indigenous clients.
