Life after Study
Community workers encourage and assist community groups to identify their needs, participate in decision-making and develop appropriate services and facilities to meet those needs.
Disability services instructors assess training needs, conduct training programmes and organise employment or recreation and leisure activities for people with intellectual, physical, sensory, social or emotional disabilities.
Disability support workers provide care, supervision and support for people with disabilities in the home, residential establishments, clinics and hospitals. They also work with other health professionals to maximise the individual's physical and mental wellbeing. They also provide companionship and emotional support, and when possible promote independence and community participation.
