More about Support Work

What is a support worker?

A support worker is someone who looks after the well-being of people in their daily lives. They help people living with different physical disabilities and mental health needs to live their lives more independently and support them to reach their potential by providing both physical and emotional support. The role of support worker is so varied - each person has unique needs, which makes the job unique too.


1. It’s more than just care

When people think of support workers, they often think of personal carers or social workers. However, support work is increasingly about social support — helping people to maintain their independence, engage with their communities and achieve their personal goals.

2. It’s a flexible career option (that anyone can do)

The great thing about being a support worker – particularly a social support worker – is that pretty much anyone can do it. Essential Personnel’s Support Workers are a mix of uni students, retirees, mums and more. Many had no experience of social work, disability or nursing before working with us: they’re just everyday people looking to make a positive difference in the world.

3. You don’t need any qualifications (but you do have to do some training)

Becoming a social support worker doesn’t need any pre-existing qualifications or experience.

You will be required to pass some legal checks and complete some mandatory training modules before getting started, which is a requirement under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). As an NDIS registered provider, we want to make sure our Carers are reliable, trustworthy, and passionate about helping their community.

4. You get to help a wide range of people (and feel good about it)!

Support workers work with a varied range of people, including people with disabilities (physical and/or intellectual), neurodiverse people (like those on the autism spectrum), people with injuries, people with illnesses, and the elderly.

5. Get paid competitively for rewarding work

Most support workers aren’t in this for the money (in fact, many people have told us they would happily volunteer). But we believe support workers should get paid a fair and competitive rate for the valuable work they do.
