What about the costs?

The good news is, there’s no sign up, membership or monthly fees. Our service fee is only a percentage on top of the hourly rate you agree with each Support Worker you employ. So you only pay for the service when you use it.

Our Direct Employ service has:

  • No fee limits
  • No cancellation fees
  • No hidden or extra fees

Meet Andrew and Steve

Andrew’s family connected with Steve via a mutual friend who suggested that Steve would be a great Support Worker for Andrew.

Steve and Andrew have a shared love of woodwork, so Steve supports Andrew to go to the Ballarat Men’s Shed three times a week.

Who can be a Support Worker?

There are many possibilities of who you can directly employ, as long as they can satisfy mandatory state requirements. Once you’ve found the right person or team for you, we’ll then deal with all the nitty gritty.

Examples of who you can employ as a Support Worker:

  • Someone local you know
  • An allied health student
  • A neighbour
  • A teacher’s aide
