Link Disability Magazine is Australia's leading national cross-disability magazineFeaturing opinions and perspectives directly from people with a disability, Link covers a diverse range of topics including news, issues, art, sport, breakthroughs, travel, health, advocacy, products and people in the disability sector. Link started out in 1980 as a small state-based newspaper and has since evolved into a national, professionally designed, glossy, colour magazine.
Celebrities often lend their support to charities and campaigns, but few have as strong a link with the cause they are spruiking as Home and Away star Penny McNamee. Penny has a strong family link with The Shepherd Centre, which provides support to children with hearing loss. Read more about Penny’s story and the work of The Shepherd Centre in our October edition.

How has the NDIS impacted the recruitment sector and what has been your organisation’s experience to date?
I don’t believe the NDIS has had an impact on the recruitment aspect, recruiting is a critical process but only one aspect of providing service. There is, at times, confusion within the sector that we are the recruiter for a particular provider, that’s not the case. We recruit specifically for the clients we are contracted to support. Our process is uncompromised and whilst many people have the necessary skills, there are a proportion of people that lack the attitude and we simply will not compromise on our standard. Our recruitment process is ongoing and we have the ability to reach far and wide.
