We offer exceptional tailored services to meet individual goals, in the workplace and in the community. We build healthy relationships, foster skills to last a lifetime, and pride ourselves on providing hands-on support to plan all areas of our clients’ lives. Above all, we promote individual choice and control to empower people with disability to live fulfilled and happy lives.
We are seeking passionate Disability Support Workers to join our team in Community Access and Lifestyle programs and Day Options.

This role will give you the opportunity to showcase your skills and creativity in sharing your hobbies and talents to improve your clients’ wellbeing and self-worth.
You will be IT savvy and know the difference between an “incident” and a “risk,” you will write amazing case notes which really demonstrate the clients’ growing independence and you’ll be constantly consulting your client about further goals and ambitions.
This role is full of variety, you’ll never be bored while having a profound impact on someone’s life. A role as a DSW with Bedford will provide you with flexibility and work life balance in a rapidly growing and rewarding industry.
