The NDS WA state conference was well attended on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th September with over 500 attendees across the disability sector. Care Support Network was warmly welcomed in Perth and delegates and exhibitors alike were keen to know more about our brand-new online matching service for support workers, carers and care seekers. Some comments we received were: “That’s terrific, you can choose your own support worker and find them online” and “I’m definitely looking for more work on my own terms.” Care Support Bear also made an appearance to liven up the event by offering free hugs and a care bag for all.
In the past, casual work has been seen as the territory of the student or transient hospitality worker. These days, however, more people are jumping on board with casual work. The flexibility and choice it offers is more than enough to outweigh the disadvantages for most people. The ‘Australia’s Casual Workforce Report’ by Care Support Network and McCrindle Research has uncovered some interesting attitudes held by Australians towards casual work. Perhaps most surprising, is that most people employed in a casual capacity choose this option to suit their lifestyle, rather than it being a role forced on them by their employer. Almost three in five people choose casual work because of the flexibility it affords.
Australia is right in the middle of winter. Depending on where you are, this could mean a pleasant reprieve from hot weather, or watching snowflakes fall in your garden!

For older people and people with disability, home is even more important. Home is where they know where everything is, where they can reach the things they need, where they are comfortable and happy.
