Disability Support Worker in Newcastle NSW
on 30 April 2020
Disability Accommodation Support
Team leader was really great and supportive.The current supervisor was really good to work with. For years that I have worked in disability support, it is very rare for a “Support worker” to have a chance to really work collaboratively with more senior staff and feel valued as part of the team. We have a great team, with really great sensible support workers just doing the best for the clients.

Not worth a cracker.
Too big a company. Feels like day program is only the poor relative of their bigger businesses, SIL and foster care.No structure in listening and responding to difficulties that I and other staff had.Beware management and HR recording meetings and conversations without notice or approval.
Mental Health Support Worker in Oran Park NSW

Amazing workplace
Challenge was my first role in the community service sector and it surely didn’t disappoint. From the start of my interview to my last day on the job I felt welcomed and appreciated. I had 0 experience and no qualifications, but they took me on anyway ready to teach me along the way. The atmosphere within the organisation was lovely, everyone was friendly and respectful. I was provided with the opportunity to develop my skills and learn from my 2IC and team leader. On my last day, customers and co-workers wrote in a hand made card wishing me well in my future endeavours, which really shows you the kind of workplace environment Challenge strive for.
Mental Health Support Worker in Illawarra NSW

Stressful
I would not recommend working here. The workload is intense, communication and training are poor and there is no work/life balance at all. There is a reason the turnover of staff is high.
Former staff in Oran Park NSW
on 4 May 2021
Oran park was very toxic, lots of bullying, racism was very common. Supervisors were incompetent
The management at Oran Park were very racist in their treatment of staff.Bullying and staff back stabbing is the norm.If you are a casual and you make the mistake of putting in a compliant, you will never be given a shift. No wonder there is high rate of staff turnover. Will never recommend this place to even my worst enemy talk less of someone I care about. This organisation is supposed to provide services for mental health but alot of staff leave there with depression and suicidal thoughts due to bullying, racism and favouritism. The only staff who survive here are those who suck up to the management. AVOID THIS ORGANISATION
