Get paid to make a difference

Disability support roles can look quite different from each other. Your day-to-day mahi will depend on the person you are working alongside, the things they want help with, and how they like to spend their time. Most support work will focus on things like helping people to connect to their community, meal planning, home help, hangs/chats, getting dressed and driving.

Check out the many job listings and watch the great stories on the website. Most support work is flexible, and can fit around whatever else you have going on. You don’t need qualifications to get started – some jobs don’t require them, and others may help you get qualified as you work. You don’t need experience to get started, either. If you love people, like a good laugh, are kind and quick to notice what others need – you’ll be great.
