Our staff and the people we work alongside come from all walks of life. While prior experience in the support sector is seen as favourable, it is not a pre-requisite. We are more interested in people who want to work in our industry for the right reasons. Our services increase the social inclusion of marginalised and isolated people so they can find purpose and meaning in a chosen community.
Work directly with individuals, supporting them to explore their interests and achieve their goals. This may include:
Supporting individuals to build capacity and gain independence in everyday life.
Connecting individuals to social groups through recreation, sport, and/or community groups.
Supporting individuals to use public transportation.
Helping individuals find and keep a job in open employment.
Updating progress on client support plans.
Collaborating and meeting with key people in an individual’s life – including family, employers, or other support services to achieve the best outcomes.
Reasons to join us
We work with you and our clients to find a mutually beneficial support schedule.
Work inside and outside the 9-5 depending on other commitments.
We have Support Workers that are training for the Olympics, studying Master’s degrees and working a second job all while delivering support comfortably.
We encourage Support Workers to find creative ways they can support clients with their prior knowledge and experience.
Through deeper insight into our clients’ support plans, stakeholder groups and the NDIS, our organisation better equips our support workers to transition into bigger roles within the industry, such as support coordination, therapy and social work.
“Right from the start the team were excited to see how I could utilise the skills I developed studying marketing to support clients. I was matched with a client who wanted support setting up an Art Micro-business. Since then, I’ve gained valuable experience that I have noted on my CV when applying for jobs and internships.” – Brenton Terry, Inclusion WA Mentor
Rewarding work where you see a real difference in clients’ lives and the community around them.

Rewarding work that is far more than ‘just a job’ where no two days are the same
