Support workers

What is the role of a Support Worker?

A Support Worker works alongside people with disability and the people important to them, to live the lifestyle they choose. Support required by customers is different for everyone. It may include assistance with mealtimes, medication, mobility, dressing, bathing and other aspects of daily living. It may also involve domestic help around the house or assistance with household tasks such as meal planning, budgeting or paying bills.

Support is provided in a customer’s home and community and can include learning to catch public transport, joining a local club or social group, making and keeping friends or keeping fit by going to the gym. No day is the same and supporting people with their physical, emotional and lifestyle needs can be incredibly rewarding.

As a Support Worker, your day is guided by how the customer you are working with needs and wants support. Our role is to assist customers to live how they choose and be as involved as they wish in directing how they are supported. Each Support Worker is a member of a neighbourhood team, supporting customers in the local area. Ongoing development and support is provided by a dedicated Coordinator and a Learning & Development Team.
