How do I choose which DES provider to work with?

The DES program gives you flexibility and choice in the services that you receive including your preferred provider. At your initial Centrelink appointment, you will have an opportunity to review providers in their area and can choose the provider that best meets your needs.

We also encourage you to compare local providers on JobSearch to make sure you pick the best fit for you.

You can choose almost any provider, even if the provider is not in your immediate area (as long as you can make the initial appointment face-to-face). We recommend choosing a provider close to you so you can have access to personal support.
