Who hires a disability support worker?
A lot of people don’t realise that they can access in-home disability support. It’s a thriving service that is not just meeting the needs of the community, but empowering people to pursue their ambitions and enjoy their lives more.
Support workers can help with help around the home when your disability makes doing these tasks difficult , they can also support you in getting out in the community and meeting new people or they can even support you to learn new and important skills.
In short, anyone who lives with a disability and needs assistance in their daily life or pursuing their goals can benefit from disability support. That includes children, teenagers and adults who have physical and/or intellectual disabilities.
How it works
As an NDIS participant, you naturally want your funding to go as far as possible. When you sign up for disability support as a Mable customer, you benefit in multiple ways. You get greater value, more choice and better control.

Browse the profiles of Independent Support Workers in your area. They’ve all been security checked and verified for your peace of mind. Narrow your search to particular interests, availability, skills and more.
Book a support session
Shortlist your favourites then connect directly via the Mable platform. You and your new support worker/s can mutually agree upon the support services, price, time and location.
Start building your network
Rest assured that you’re covered by the protections and safeguards of the Mable platform, including insurance. Continue building your team by connecting with other support workers.
Is it expensive to hire a disability support worker?
You’ll likely find that the fees are quite reasonable. If you have an NDIS package, then your out-of-pocket expenses will be greatly reduced.
