Support workers form the foundation of the NDIS. They help participants with essential activities, like community access, shopping, cleaning, transport, social support and more.

At SeenCare, our disability support workers in Melbourne are part of a larger team, including in-home nurses and GPs. This means that in addition to helping with general activities of daily living, they can also assist with more complex health-related matters.

What Is a Support Worker?

A support worker is a trained professional who helps you achieve your goals, increase independence, manage daily life and develop new skills.

While there are common tasks support workers help people with, each NDIS participant’s needs are unique. So the roles, responsibilities and skills of a support worker will vary from client to client.

What a support worker might be able to help you with depends on your NDIS funding.

NDIS Funding and Disability Support Workers

In your NDIS plan, you might receive funding in your Core Supports budget and Capacity Building Supports budget for a range of things a disability support worker could help with.

Core Supports can include assistance with daily activities, such as cleaning, cooking, help with personal care and managing your day-to-day life. It might also involve transport and help to participate in social activities.

Capacity Building Supports help you build independence and specific skills. Funding might be provided to work on specific skills, like finding and keeping a job, health & well-being, relationships and activities of daily living.

An NDIS disability support worker wouldn’t necessarily help with everything in your Core Supports and Capacity Building budgets. But their skills and experience mean they are often a good fit to support you to achieve many of the goals in your plan.

How an NDIS Support Worker Can Help

Some of the most common disability support worker duties are:

  • Assisting with household tasks, like cleaning, laundry and shopping
  • Supporting people to access the community, such as attending recreational activities or engaging in education or employment
  • Help to schedule and attend appointments, including medical appointments and meetings with other service providers
  • Support with personal care, such as showering, dressing and grooming
  • Practical and emotional assistance with specific goals, like being more physically active, eating well or maintaining important relationships
  • In-home respite for carers and/or overnight supports
  • Working in partnership with other professionals to improve overall care, such as doctors, nurses and community support workers
  • Providing general social and emotional support

Choosing the Right Disability Support Worker

As an NDIS participant, it’s important to remember you have the right to choose what support workers you work with.

While there are no absolute rules about what makes a good support worker, you might like to consider the following when making your decision.

A good support worker will:

  • Make you feel comfortable and respect who you are as a person
  • Be interested in your goals and how they can help you achieve them
  • Follow through on what they say they will do to assist you
  • Be friendly, but operate with clear professional boundaries
  • Work in partnership with the rest of your support network and care team

If you have concerns about your support worker, try talking to them about it first if you feel comfortable. Otherwise, bring it up with a manager from their agency or one of your support people.

If you need more formal help regarding concerns about a support worker or other NDIS provider, the Australian Government has a National Disability Advocacy Program that might be able to assist.
