Interchange Australia is committed to providing high quality support services to a diverse range of clients. This diversity of client requirements results in being able to provide support staff with a diverse range of shifts across the many programs and activities Interchange Australia provides. We provide services to people who are older, people with disability and to children, which enhances the Support Worker experience. Some examples of our services and activities include:
• Music groups
• Drama group
• Dinner groups
• Short Term accommodation
• Weekend outings
• Personal Care
• Domestic Assistance
• Social Support
Our values and philosophy are introduced throughout the interview process and are reinforced regularly throughout orientation, the intranet and via our monthly Staff Information Sessions. At Interchange Australia, we provide a flexible and innovative work environment and encourage staff interaction and communication throughout the entire organisation. We provide many opportunities for ongoing education and all of our staff take a person centred approach to service delivery.
Our Support Workers often comment on the high level of satisfaction from being able to see the positive outcomes that our services provide for clients. They advise that it is encouraging to work with the client and being with them as they make an advancement in the achievement of a goal, or interact with the client when they participate in a social group for the first time which leads to a new group of friends and a wider variety of social events.
