Who are we?
We’re a registered NDIS disability services provider, offering support and care to people aged 17-65 living with a disability in the Western Sydney area.
Our mission is to enhance the lives of people with disabilities and their families. We do this by recognising the abilities and needs of each individual and supporting them in any way we can to enable them to live their life to the fullest.
Some reasons to become a disability support worker:
Above all, you’ll be helping people to live their best life possible, and the joy and job satisfaction that this brings is one of the biggest benefits of the role. You can go to sleep at night knowing that what you’ve done that day has had a direct impact in someone’s life.
Your job changes according to the participants’ changing needs, so no two days will ever be the same. You may work with only one or two participants, or you may work with many, depending upon your experience and passion.
Working in the care sector is challenging and requires hard work and dedication. If you love a challenge, love people, and want to help, this job might be just for you. It will help you build on your existing skills as well as develop new skills to help you learn and grow.
Job security and opportunities
Disability support workers are in demand, and this demand is growing.
The Government is committed to supporting people with disabilities through NDIS and jobs in the sector are booming. The number of workers needed to fill roles is growing daily. Being in a growth industry there are many opportunities for career development and enhancement.
Or rosters are worked around the requirements of our participants, allowing you more flexibility in terms of managing work-life balance and family commitments. Often, you can tailor your work schedule around your life requirements.
So, what does the job actually entail?
You’ll be providing support, care, and companionship to people living with a disability in their own homes.
Tasks may include running errands, shopping, carrying out household chores like washing, cleaning, laundry, meal preparation, helping with eating or feeding, and personal care assistance such as bathing, toileting, and grooming.
You may have a variety of clients, so the work can be varied, depending upon each individual’s needs.
