Purple Co: The Provider of Choice for Pre-Vocational Planning and Return to Work Assistance for Lifetime Care and Support Participants
Getting your life back on track after severe or traumatic injury can be a terrifying experience. At Purple Co, we’re passionate about helping people maximise their independence and improve their quality of life after injury, illness or trauma.
We work with Lifetime Care and Support participants to create a pathway towards independence, community engagement and participation in work. As experts in prevocational planning, counselling and return to work support, we help our clients identify their existing skills and strengths, plan for retraining and return to work, and restore hope in their capabilities and the future.
We’ve become sought after for Work Options Plans (WOPs) for people where return to work seems unlikely, even unthinkable, and it’s our passion to show clients that they can still find gainful employment and restore purpose in their lives.
We’re known for our expertise in helping clients with Spinal Cord Injury, Brain Injury, Amputations and other traumatic injuries. As proud facilitators of “the health benefits of good work”, we walk the walk when it comes to incorporating the health benefits of work in all that we do.
