Where are these supports available?
Our daily living skills and lifestyle-based supports are available in every state and territory.
It’s tailored to you, and we’ll support you in a way that suits your lifestyle. That can include meeting at your home, at local services, or getting together with a group. The amount of time we spend together each week or month is up to you – it’s about finding what works for you.....
Who will I be partnered with?
Our team will work with you to identify supports that help you achieve your goals. You’ll be partnered with a trained Disability Support Worker who has experience that aligns with your goals, needs and interests.
Together, you’ll further develop your daily living skills, achieve your goals and get involved in your community in a way that’s interesting and enjoyable for you.
"Seeing him smile, doing something that he loves makes it all worth it. He’s opened up 100% and it’s given him a goal he wants to achieve."Candice, Matt’s Support Worker.
Matt’s passion is coffee and he has a dream of opening his own café. So, when Matt’s support team began working with him, they found ways to get him closer to living his dream. With our daily living supports, Matt developed his barista skills and completed some local training. Then, after a coffee machine was generously donated to the local community centre, Matt began operating his own coffee shop one morning a week! On Fridays, he serves coffee to Life Without Barriers staff, clients and the general public, while continuing to boost his skills in other ways.
