Across the country, we are looking for people to join the Winter Relief Workforce for disability support workers.

We need the community's help to ensure that the word gets out, and the national disability support network is covered in the event of critical staff shortages this winter due to illnesses like the flu.


The NDIA, working with IPA Personnel, is taking the proactive step of developing a register of skilled disability workers able to be called up on a short-term basis when needed.

Help us spread the word

To fill this register, we are looking for former disability support workers or final placement students with appropriate worker clearance and police checks, who are not currently working in disability support.

The resources below have been developed to help us to identify and attract suitable candidates. Please share these with your own disability support networks, such as by sharing on social media, websites and to email newsletter lists, to assist the NDIA in assembling this much-needed workforce.
