A typical day as a Youth and Disability Support Worker - Cody's story

As a Youth and Disability Support Worker, how will you support me?

We start with a 5 day paid induction. These sessions provide valuable insight into what life is like as a Youth and Disability Support worker. We provide Therapeutic Crisis Intervention training during this time, ensuring you start with the foundations to make the best possible decision when you’re on shift.

Our teams are structured to ensure you always have access to support, what ever time of the day or night. Sometimes a debrief over the phone is all that’s needed to keep you learning and motivated.

We believe strongly in connection and forming genuine bonds with the young people in our care. Our rostering team work hard to provide consistency in shifts so you have the best opportunity to make a genuine impact in a young persons’ life.
