Each Participant that receives Community Access & Capacity Building Supports is assigned to a Team Leader. Our Team Leaders are an important part of our support structure at Empowered Community Services. Each of our Team Leaders has first-hand experience in the field of Disability Support Work and uses their valuable experience to guide our Support Workers. Team Leaders are able to provide support to our Participants and are able to ensure that their supports remain person-centred and that each Participant is continually given the choice and control over their support plan. Team Leaders will be charged under Non-Face to Face Supports from the most relevant line item. This will be written in a Participants Service Agreement as Team Leader Assistance.
