As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic a number of NDIS providers have contracted services and, in some instances, ceased providing services altogether, this has had the unintended effect of leaving a potentially large volume of participants in dire need of essential supports along with leaving many support workers unemployed or underemployed
As part of the NDIS (national disability insurance scheme) COVID-19 response, Australian Carers have been listed as a provider of approved support workers. All of our support workers are subject to the NDIS Code Of Conduct. If the delivery of your supports have been disrupted or you are just looking for new support workers, or backup coverage – Australian carers are ready to help maintain your supports with approved support workers
Remember you can use your NDIS funding flexibly to meet your plan goals. You can find more information about how the NDIA can help you find a support worker during the coronovirus (Covid-19) pandemic .
