The Social Policy Research Centre was commissioned to examine the long-term quality of life outcomes of employees in supported employment (in Australian Disability Enterprise) who were planning to retire or had retired. In particular, the research examined the Transition to Retirement initiative that supports workers with disability to plan their retirement. The study, which commenced in July 2015, involved talking to people who have used the Transition to Retirement program and the staff involved in this program.
