Workbridge, where abilities equal employment.

Our history


The Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment League was formed as a not-for-profit organisation to provide rehabilitation and employment for disabled soldiers of the South African Wars and the First World War.


The Constitution of the League was amended to undertake the training and re-establishment of disabled servicemen of the Second World War. The name was changed to The Disabled Servicemen's Re-establishment League.


The League was appointed a government agent for both ex-servicemen and civilians from 1 April 1969. The name was changed to The Disabled Re-establishment League.


The name was changed to Rehabilitation League NZ.


The League went through a major restructure and changed its name to Workbridge Incorporated.

Workbridge emerged as a dedicated employment service for people with disabilities seeking to gain or retain open employment.


Workbridge Incorporated adopted a new constitution, developing a two-tier governance structure independent of government.
