Support Workers

We employ over fifty Support Workers across the Lake Macquarie, Newcastle & Hunter Region. All of our staff complete in-house training specifically designed to assist our participants to reach their goals within a tailored support model.

We ensure that our staff know the importance of inclusion and that our participants are active members of their community. Staff are provided with information on mental health support strategies, appropriate boundaries and guidelines for support under the NDIS.
