A:
Disability Support Workers

All Disability Support Workers have various qualifications but must hold a minimum Certificate III in Disability or an equivalent qualification/experience. Many of our support workers started with volunteers on our program, some of which have supported campers on over 100 camps.  All of our staff are committed to People Outdoors values and work hard to help campers achieve their outcomes.

All Disability Support Workers have a current Level 2 in First Aid and CPR and a minimum of 6 months experience (paid employment) working with people with a disability.

NDIS Programs are predominantly staffed by Disability Support Workers with support of volunteers.

Volunteers

Our programs are supported by a wonderful group of volunteers.

Our volunteers do not need any formal qualifications, but they do receive comprehensive and ongoing training including first aid, CPR, administration of medication, behaviour management, personal care assistance, disability awareness, leadership and communication and much more.

We are very fortunate to have volunteers that have supported People Outdoors for over 10 years, working with people with disabilities across all support ratios.

All volunteers have current Police Checks and Working With Children Checks.
