How to become a Support Worker?

Did you know that within the next five years around 500,000 Australians under 65 years, who have a permanent and significant disability, will have access to funding and a support worker through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

For many people living with disability, it will be the first time receiving the support they need, they will have the opportunity to have a support worker looking after them. As a result of that, thousands of jobs are being added out there across the country every week.

Ok, but what a Support Worker does? 

As a support worker, your main job is to provide clients with companionship, support them around the house and help them get connected with their community and family members.

With different clients every day, you’ll spend your time on the road, completing your scheduled visits, interacting one-on-one with clients and their loved ones within their homes completing small house tasks. You can also work in Aged Care centres.

It’s a very rewarding career, working to help people by promoting community inclusion, independence, decision making and personal choice through support.
