How we can help

If you are ready to work, or need the skills to chase that dream job, Real Futures can help.

Real Futures has changed the lives of thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their families and their communities – their Mob – by doing things differently. We are deeply embedded in the communities where we work, and we create new opportunities in partnership with others every day.

It all starts by getting to know your needs and aspirations, so we can help you move forward at your own pace.

There’s no cost to you

Our support won’t cost you anything. Real Futures is funded by the Australian Government to provide our services to you, through our: 

A job that comes with training

Real Futures runs Vocational Training and Employment Centres (VTECs) in NSW, Northern Territory and Western Australia that can connect you with some of the country’s largest employers, as well as help you get a job and train you for it.

Support that understands special needs as well as unique abilities

If you have a disability, injury or health condition, we can help you find a job and keep it. We offer Disability Employment Services (DES) from Coffs Harbour to Dorrigo, Kempsey to Nambucca Heads and Geraldton through to the Gascoyne. We employ and skill our expert staff to deliver quality services in all of our locations.

Why we’re different

For us, it’s all about mutual respect. As a majority Aboriginal-owned company, we are part of your community – and passionate about empowering our Mob and building a First Nations workforce.

We care about your wellbeing.

And we start with a yarn.
