In a Northern Rivers partnership collaboration initiative, Tursa has announced a supplementary financial commitment to support a Northern Rivers Young Entrepreneur Scholarship.

Speaking at the 2018 Northern Rivers Thinking Different Summit, Tursa’s Debbie Fry says the contribution of $1500, complemented by mentorship or suitable training, will assist the recipient to take their business concept or skills to the next level.

Tursa Employment & Training, which has recently expanded its Disability Employment Services’ network from three to 58 sites across the areas of the Northern Rivers, Mid North Coast, and South East Queensland, believes the scholarship demonstrates  – a commitment to address unemployment issues and contribute positively to the Northern Rivers community.

As a Disability Employment Services provider committed to assisting people with disability to find suitable employment, TURSA will specifically provide support to one successful young entrepreneur who lives with disability.
