Guidestar provides support coordination, positive behaviour support and therapy services for adults and children with cognitive impairment and complex support needs. We also offer a counselling clinic and training division.
We are passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of people with cognitive impairment with complex support needs through the provision of evidence-based, trauma-informed, individualised behaviour assessment and support. We are a registered NDIS provider with significant experience in service delivery. Our team is diverse and interdisciplinary with qualifications, specific training, and practical experience in Psychology, Social Work, Disability, Community Services, Mental Health and Forensic services. Our practitioners have a strong passion for supporting people with disability/mental health, their families and supporters.
Due to increasing demand, we are looking for suitably qualified Support Coordinators. The role focuses on addressing challenges and complexity, connecting with supports, building capacity and resilience, and achieving the person's goals.
The successful applicants will have experience in the community services environment. In particular, they will bring support coordination and stakeholder engagement skills and demonstrate an understanding of how best to access and maintain services for participants living with disabilities.
