A Life Changing Life in the care and support sector

7 September 2021A Life Changing Life in the care and support sector image

A new national campaign, A Life Changing Life, encourages Australians looking for a diverse and rewarding job to consider care and support work. 
The care and support sector, which includes aged care, disability and veterans’ support is the fastest-growing sector in Australia right now.

With the growth of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Australia’s ageing population, there are plenty of opportunities for people looking for rewarding work that fits in with their lives.

A Life Changing Life aims to reach students, young people looking for meaningful work, professionals looking to transfer their skills into the sector, and people who bring lived experience to support a diverse range of people.

A Life Changing Life showcases a key reason why people work in the care and support sector – the warm and mutually beneficial relationships they develop with the people they support.

A Life Changing Life shares the stories of real care and support workers and the people they support, and shows the diversity, value and impact of the work.

The campaign website, careandsupportjobs.gov.au features detailed information and a range of resources for people considering care and support work, as well as for potential employers.

For more information, or if you know someone who would be a good fit for a care and support role, visit careandsupportjobs.gov.au or follow @CareandSupportAus on Facebook.
