WHO WE ARE

With significant experience in the disability sector within government and community organisations, Rubix Support is passionate about supporting people with cognitive impairments lead the life they want to live and to achieve their goals and aspirations. Rubix Support provide support to people aged between two years to sixty five years old. We are a registered provider under the NDIS and provide services across three main areas - positive behaviour support, support coordination and lifestyle support.

Rubix Support aims to improve the personal wellbeing of people with cognitive impairments with complex support needs through specialised, coordinated assessments and support and to provide extensive training and support to its empathetic, experienced and energetic staff. Rubix Support’s Vision is to be a leader in the provision of evidence-based, practical, individualised behaviour assessment and support for people with intellectual impairments with complex support needs.

ABOUT THE ROLE

A rewarding and challenging role, as a casual disability (lifestyle) support worker you will be instrumental in providing support for our participants and making positive contributions to their quality of life.
