The idea of moving away from the auto industry can be really daunting, but we’re here to help.

No matter what your next step is, preparing for the end of auto manufacturing in South Australia is going to take time.  It’s really important that you don’t wait to start thinking about what’s next for you.

There is plenty of information on this site to help you, but much more support is available through Northern Futures if you register for free support.

Have you been made redundant in the last six months?

The Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme supports workers who have lost their job in the automotive manufacturing industry, including component suppliers.

If you have been made redundant, you may be eligible for additional support through the Australian Government’s Automotive Industry Structural Adjustment Programme (AISAP). To access AISAP, you must register with a jobactive provider within six months of your redundancy date. Through AISAP, your jobactive provider can access up to $1,300 to pay for work related items such as training, uniforms, tickets and licences that can help you get a job.

To find your local jobactive provider visit the jobactive website or call 13 62 68 and explain you are an automotive supply chain worker wanting to register for AISAP.

Please note, AISAP is separate to the $2,500 in support available through the Drive Your Future program. Eligible auto supply chain workers can access both support programs.
