About Way Future Support Services QLD Pty Ltd
Our vision is to provide services that will increase educational and work opportunities for community members with disability, including those from non-English-speaking backgrounds.
Our services are available to all Australian citizens, residents or permanent visa holders who meet the disability or early intervention requirements.
Clients from non-English speaking backgrounds
Australia has made a moral and legal commitment to promote and protect the equal rights of people with disability who are from non-English speaking backgrounds.
Because of this commitment, disability services such as Way Future are paid by the NDIS to teach skills and provide tools for these first-generation Australians to take their place in society. Disability Support Pensions are not affected.
Most of our supports are aimed at education and vocational training to help clients gain meaningful employment. (Full list of supports on this site). Way Future doesn’t choose what you need or want to learn, we offer guidance. You are the expert on you, so are the right person to decide what supports you need and want.
You won’t be alone in all of this. Fellow clients, either born in English or non-English speaking communities, will be learning along with you. These connections will provide support, advice, and lots of laughter, as well as networking for possible employment – all of which establishes ties with the larger life around you.
The staff at Way Future Disability Services don’t under-estimate the courage involved in taking a new path. It will be a privilege to walk alongside you, towards a life that you possibly can’t even imagine right now.
About our Director
Sheriff is the founder, visionary and director of Way Future Support Services. Ever since he graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work and Social Policy from the University of Queensland in 2005, Sheriff had a vision and a mission; to serve the greater Australian community, by guiding and promoting better ways of living.
Never deviating from the path of public service since leaving Queensland University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Social Work and Social Policy, Sheriff worked with the South Brisbane Immigration Community Legal Service, then the Department of Communities’ Child Safety and Disability Services before signing on with the Australian Government’s Department of Human Services where he has served for the past eleven years to the usually high-turnover profession of social work.
On top of his Social Work experience within the Department of Human Services, Sheriff has worked in Centrelink as a social worker and a job capacity assessor.
Through his career Sheriff has acquired a deep knowledge in the Disability Services’ world and has now founded Way Future to extend on this knowledge and provide his support to the community.
Sheriff is currently a Lecturer at the University of Queensland’s School of Social Work.
