Support work

Get the assistance you or your participant needs from a reliable, like-minded support worker.

Whether you want to participate in a sport, visit a hydrotherapy pool, go to a gaming group, or complete a TAFE course, we help our participants get out there, have fun and hit goals!

Support for fuller, more independent lives

Our support workers provide emotional, social and practical support to NDIS participants with mental illness and/or a disability. After an initial meet and greet with one of our team, we match you with the right, like-minded support worker for your needs and interests.

Our support workers are energetic, reliable and fully vetted. We know meeting new people can cause anxiety, so once matched, you’ll be supported by the same person every time. If they’re sick, we have a small team of ‘super subs’ who step in and become familiar faces.
