Make a difference with a qualification in Disability Support from Linx Institute

Disability support courses - Linx Institute

Working within the disability support industry is one of the most rewarding jobs you can have! At present around 4 million (17%) Australians are considered to have a disability, with 3.4 million of those living with a physical impairment. A disability can be anything that restricts a person’s mental, sensory or physical abilities, affecting people of all ages and from all walks of life.

As a disability support worker it is your job to promote well being and independence as much as possible to encourage a happy and fulfilling life for those living with physical and/or mental disabilities. With continued assistance from Government funding and underlying economical and demographic factors, which are expected to increase the proportion of those who need specialised care, demand for Disability Support Workers across Australia is forecast to rise by an annualised 8.7% over the next 5 years. Factors such as an ageing population and an increase in drug and alcohol abuse, which can lead to mental health issues, are anticipated to contribute towards the rise in demand for Disability Support Workers.

About the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which launched in July 2013, outlines a new way of providing individualised support for people with permanent and significant disabilities as well as their families and carers. Linx Institute work with closely the NDIS to ensure those with a disability continue to receive the support they need.
