Why work with Avas Support?

We value what's important

We serve a person, not a need

The need is important and helps define the care, but you are more important – you are not your disability – and our focus is finding the best for you through participant-centred, customised, quality care. We believe everyone deserves to live an abundant life, empowered to be all that they can be.

We support community

We are passionate about community transformation and get involved in the community wherever we open a new branch of our business. We believe our nation will be different tomorrow because of the way we do business in local communities today. We operate with integrity and choose sustainable business practices so that we are successful and able to invest in our future and in yours.

We keep the safety in and kick the boring out!

We believe in thinking outside the box and colouring outside the lines. We don’t follow the way it’s always been done. While we keep things safe and provide good governance, we also try new things. We experiment. We push the boundaries of what people thought possible. And most importantly, we have fun doing it! The people we serve every day are full of colour – we don’t believe in limits or lines!

We are a great place to work and value our staff

We invest in them, train them, celebrate them and reward them for their effort. Our support workers are the best of who we are and provide quality care that makes a meaningful difference. Our disability support worker jobs are not just jobs — they are rewarding and fulfilling careers that allow you to make a real difference in people’s lives.

We support you, our support workers

We operate with integrity and choose sustainable business practices so that we are successful and able to invest in our future and in yours.

We are passionate about taking care of our support workers and will always provide support to you; as it is through you that we are able to help people the most. This comes in many forms, depending on your individual support requirements, including providing in house training and/or external training, complex care support, helping you to follow health support plans, incident response support, and training in working with children. We provide training and accreditation for all of the necessary areas needed to be successful in the role and thrive in your support worker job and will guide you in established support work practices to assist participants in the best way possible.

We provide encouragement and support to all of our support workers. We will help you to develop new skills and achieve your future goals through career development. As we are participant focused and care deeply about the people we provide support to, we know that helping you is the best way to support participants and others that need our help to get the best out of life.

The role

About our support worker jobs

The role of a support worker is a rewarding one, where you are able to make a real difference in the lives of others. You will provide culturally sensitive assistance, support and care, in line with health support plans, mental health support plans, and other support plans for the individuals in your care. The support provided in your role makes a huge difference to the people we work with.

Community access support

Your job as a support worker will include assisting participants to access the community for events, classes, shops, facilities and other community orientated activities.

Independent living skills

We provide assistance with independent living skills and other life skills. We allow opportunities for participants to exercise and learn independent living skills within our care and support programs, and this will become a core part of your new job role.


We help our participants to get to the places they need to go, to be part of a community, receive essential services, health care and other important elements of daily life. Your support worker role will see you support participants to and from appointments with transport assistance.

Domestic assistance

About Avas Support

Avas Support Pty Ltd. was established in July of 2019 in response to witnessing participants being mismatched with unsuitable support workers. This created a problem of unhappy participants’ needs not being met, goals not being achieved, and desires ignored.

We aim to solve this problem by hand picking caring individuals, providing them with quality training and matching them with participants where they can support them to meet their needs, achieve their goals and create a fulfilling life. With this custom approach we aim to be a service that represents quality and exudes integrity; delivering the service exactly how we claim to.

Our people are our heart and soul
