NDIS: Join the Winter Relief Workforce

The National Disability Insurance Agency is working with IPA Personnel to create a register of qualified disability support workers available to fill local shifts over the winter months. The register will help ensure the continuity of supports for NDIS participants if the community is hit with workforce disruptions due to illness.

Placements will be local, and workers would not be expected to be available on a full-time basis. They will only be called when other support arrangements are unavailable. Relief workers will be lending a much-needed hand throughout a difficult time.

Former disability support workers or final year placement students with appropriate worker clearances and police checks are encouraged to join the register. To join the register or find out more visit the Winter Relief website.
