RESIDENTIAL YOUTH WORKER in Toowoomba QLD
Tough job but a good workplaceWorked in residential side really hard job. Dealing with threats of violence, actual violence, anti-social behaviour, run aways etc. Violence/anti-social behaviour is manageable due to the age of some of the kids, and I never felt unsafe, but it can get old fast and I could understand where someone could feel unsafe. Pay is good and you have a lot of downtime if the person you are caring for is in a stable mood. Workplace and bosses are supportive and very nice, other carers were cool and easy to get along with. Practices I feel may not support the carers being able to stop bad behaviour but thats more due to the legislation than the actual companies e.g. not being able to punish kids for bad behaviour which then entices them to act out to get what they want, knowing that nothing will happen etc. Not all are bad days, some days are chill but a lot are stressful and overall I chose to leave to save my mental health. I would recommend the company though to anyone interested in giving it a go.

Challenging work environment Challenging work environment due to lack of cohesion between teams, seemed like it was an Us vs Them mentality between some teams. Priority doesn’t seem to be the people who need support
Registered Nurse with a Behaviour & Health Focus in Sydney and Hunter
Working with a great team of professionalsI have worked at LWB for the past (almost) three years in various capacities, currently as a registered nurse. I have found the teams to be professional and very client focused when I interact with operational staff. I feel that direct care staff training could be more comprehensive but this is restricted by poor recognition of this by the NDIS funding model.
