What are Disability Services?

Disability services provide care and support to people with physical or intellectual disabilities, as well as their family and carers. They’re designed to improve the health, wellbeing and independence of people with a disability, as well as help them develop life skills and participate in social activities. It’s a rewarding career with a huge range of career pathways available.

You’ll spend time with clients and provide them with company and support, or take them to social activities in the community.
