Support Network is a user-friendly online platform where you can search for and hire independent support workers.
Sign up for free and search online for qualified support workers according to which suburb they work in, and what services they offer. You can also post your own unique job ad, inviting support workers to apply for the position.
Once you find someone you would like to connect with, you can contact them directly through Support Network to arrange an interview. If you decide to hire them, we will organise payment – including using your NDIS funding or home care package – so you don’t have to worry about the admin.
Clients and support workers will not have to pay anything to join. Support workers set their own hourly rate. Price can be negotiated between client and support worker. Client will then pay 14.998% surcharge plus agreed price. Support worker will receive 0.002% less than agreed price, which allows us to provide you with ongoing support, insurances, administration and assistance.
