Having a disability does not prevent you from participating in life. With the right support services, you can reach your full potential. An NDIS Support Worker can assist you if you or someone you know is dealing with a mental health condition, a disability, or a psychosocial disorder or challenge. An NDIS support professional helps you with:

  • Cancer treatment support – (support workers who come to appointments and treatments)
  • Disability
  • Justice System Assistance – (Transitional assistance to facilitate the transition from
  • prison to community where reasonably necessary and specifically needed on the grounds of disability).
  • Diseases of the Mind
  • Rehabilitation Assistance

What does a professional NDIS support worker do?

  • Engage and build relationships with participants with psychosocial disabilities.
  • Build good working relationships with NDIS participants and work effectively together to
  • define and achieve the goals set in the NDIS plan.
  • Improve participants' ability to manage their health, well-being and life needs.
  • Regularly provide person-centred support, including social and community involvement and
  • activities of daily living.
  • Engage and support families and caregivers in the recovery process by connecting them with
  • in-house team members who can facilitate alignment with services that meet their individual needs.
  • Work both autonomously in community outreach settings and work collaboratively in teams to provide quality psychosocial support.

How they help?

1. Assisting you in your goals

A good NDIS provider can help you set SMART goals. The benefits of goals extend beyond obstacles. Goals are guidelines for what you want to achieve in life and how to do those things.

2. Helping you in your daily life

You can access services and hire support agents to help you with everything you need in your daily life with things like personal hygiene like showering, using the toilet, preparing meals, and shopping.

3. Become independent

The main goal of NDIS is to develop the skills necessary to live independently. One of the basic human rights of people with disabilities is the ability to live the life they choose. This includes choosing what kind of support you get from which provider.

4. Helping You developing your skill

Disability support services can help you learn things so you can do it yourself in the future. This example includes learning:

  • Plan your meals in advance and create a grocery list.
  • Use public transportation to get around.
  • Join community groups and make friends. I can help them improve their health.
  • Health is body, mind, heart and soul. The SALT Foundation hosts an event every two weeks where he can learn how to live a healthier life.

5. Helping you in money management

Many people have never learned the skill of managing money. Still, managing money is not that difficult. A professional NDIS support worker helps you in:

  • Managing money
  • Paying yourself first
  • Budgeting doesn't work for most people. Some money experts don't budget for this reason. But the plan works.

Keep your emotions in check and make a plan to automate your money management as much as possible.

  • Invoice
  • savings
  • investment

To choose the best support worker, you need to make sure they are certified and experienced. Your support worker must possess, at the very least, a Certificate 3 in Disability, Mental Health, and Individual Support to be eligible to operate as a support worker under the NDIS. This is a vocational certification that can only be offered by authorised training organisations.
