Lack of career counsellor for disabled at welfare office in Chennai

The district disabled welfare office in Chennai lacks the post of a career counsellor since many years.

The career counsellor or vocational guidance officer (VGO) is important to provide training assistance, explain self-employment opportunities and give details about government employment exams.

Sadly, it is reported that other support staff like receptionist provides the career guidance to atleast 100 disabled people coming to the welfare office everyday.

Some of the work done by other staff are issuing ID cards, distributing free assistive devices, scholarships and monthly allowances.

However, activists say that important posts in district welfare offices must be filled to help the disabled receive proper information about jobs and career.
