Disability Support Worker

“Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.” – Josh Shipp

Our Disability Support Workers provide personal, emotional and physical support and care to people with a physical or intellectual disability. They work with NDIS funded and self-funded young people. Through customized programs developed in collaboration with allied health professionals, they can assist young people to achieve their developmental milestones by expanding their decision-making skills, promoting their independence, and fostering the development of personal and social relationships. Disability Support Workers can also help young people be more active and involved in their local community by facilitating social activities and outings.

  • Support Coordination and/or Plan Management (by a certified Accountant with a background in health)
  • Assist and help improve independence in personal care and hygiene activities (e.g. eating, bathing, toileting)

  • Provide social and behavioural support
  • Assist with finding and maintaining employment
