Working at LWB one can get flexible working environment. Employees can have their lunch whenever they want, they can relax and go out for a walk if they are exhausted that can help improve the performance. It was a wonderful experience doing the internship over there.
Management struggle with their roles and have no people skills.
Worker (Former Employee) – Cairns QLD – 7 September 2017
Life Without Barriers is not such a good place to work now that the management is being run people who lack people skills. It has the potential to be good again once the current Cairns office management is replaced by people who know what they are doing.
Disabilities support worker/Foster Carer (Former Employee) – Mackay QLD – 3 September 2017
really great to work for and ahead of all the other support organisations when it comes to quality and person centred care requirements. Pay was always on time and accurate with great rates and benefits. I always had the support i needed when it came to stresses of the job and management was always contactable to discuss issues. would recommend working with life without barriers to anybody for a great career in the support industry.
Being a Foster Carer is working from home and caring for the child. The company in general were always there for you if you need them. Very big on culture and you had to complete 3 courses per year to continue being a Carer. I guess the hardest part of the job was making the child feel welcome and comfortable in your home. The children obviously had been removed from danger. So they would be scared. The most enjoyable part of the job was making them happy and being loved.
They always looked after the Carers when in training
Disability Support Worker (Former Employee) – Cairns QLD – 3 April 2017
I worked as Disability Support Worker, sometimes back to back if someone didn't show up. I took the client for shopping and appointment for the Doctor. On time to work rain or shine. I followed the workplace health and safety for my clients. The hardest part of the job if your had three clients and by yourself to work . I got more pay, and caring for them.
Disability Support Worker (Current Employee) – Townsville QLD – 25 March 2017
Best thing about the job is my clients who I love working with. They are the ONLY reason I have stayed with LWB. Management keeps changing and doesnt listen to support workers on the ground. As much as I love my clients I wouldnt recommend LWB as a workplace.
Agency does a lot of good. Employees lack good work ethic
Case Coordinator (Former Employee) – Parramatta NSW – 9 March 2017
Employees lack good work ethic. People are promoted for the wrong reasons. Agency does a lot of good for refugees and new Australians. Management is a little lost. They need to figure out direction and work together to get there. Communication could be improved.
I am willing to drive in and out to any positions available in the mining industry

I have my CA car licence and my own vehicle. I am a healthy person and I like to keep active and I also enjoy meeting people and learning new information.
Case Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 13 September 2016
Most mid- and senior-level managers in their NSW branch of the refugee program are incompetent and do not have the technical knowledge of programs they run, they lack people skills needed to manage staff, address their needs or accord respect, they instead resort to micromanagement and making petty and demeaning rules.
workplace for people who loves to make a difference
HR Administrator (Current Employee) – Adelaide SA – 10 September 2016
My work days are never the same and often unfold differently of how I planned it. I have learned to be flexible, being adaptable and act on what ever needs to be attended to, juggling many priorities and meeting several deadlines. For sure no day is the same but at the same time that's what I like in my job.
