Building an Industry of Choice: Service Quality, Workforce Capacity and Consumer-Centred Funding in Disability Care

Natasha, Cortis, Gabrielle, Meagher, Sharni, Chan

Published Literature

2013

Specifically, the report compiles research and evaluation findings about what individualised funding models mean for workers in disability service organisations, and for those whom service users directly employ or contract to provide support. We recognise that disability services include staff in a wide range of occupations and roles. People with disabilities may draw on assistance from nurses, case managers, allied health workers, planners, facilitators, welfare workers, as well as food and transport workers and others who provide personal care and therapy, social and or welfare support, respite care, and domestic assistance. In this report the term ‘disability support worker’ refers to this wide range of paid workers, while the term ‘carer’ refers to family, friends, and volunteers who provide informal or unpaid assistance.
