  • Will the same Direct Support Worker provide my service each time? +

    If you request the same Support Worker we will try our best to acheive this, most of our Support Workers are requested often though as they are best in the industry. We encourage clients to trial a few workers until they come up with a "team" that they are happy with.

    It is important not to be too reliant on the same worker as they will inevitably have leave at some stage. If you have a team of preferred workers, one of the team can fill in for others when they are on leave.
