Would not recommend working for Life Without Barriers. Management lie and never supportive of the staff doing the work. The culture at LWB is very much if you kiss butt you will move up the ladder without prior knowledge of the type of work being done. Only some staff do the work while others sit and do nothing. They never pay out correct pay once you leave either. DO NOT WORK THERE...PROTECT YOURSELF

It was my first job as a Community Worker and I still consider one of the bests I have ever had. Management used to listen the workers and consider our opinion to take a decision. Manager was very efficient keeping the harmony and cooperation among workers, provide us constant training and be there for us as individuals when we needed it. Best part of the work was a a very integrated and reliable team. Hardest part of the job was supporting youth during their critical crises moments including suicidal attempting.

Its a culture of who knows who and nothing about suitability with a participant. Its a wage for management and it shows. I never met one happy support worker who praised the organisation just constant complaints on how management treat people. Alot of unhappy support workers still working there, miserable which reflects on participants. Alot of talk and no action. Alot of unhappy families with participants. Really sad culture and needs a massive clean up on management. Very difficult to give any stars!

Rather not comment Life without Barriers can be a wonderful place to work especially if you are related to anyone within management. I loved working with the clients of LWB and many members of staff but management, communication and empathy for unrelated staff was non existent.

Team Leaders and Managers are friends with certain staff who gets away with what they want. Managers are in for the money. There is high staff turn over.

LWB, has some great aspects but the lack of support for their staff is really disappointing. The management has no interest in the safety of their staff and no understanding of the psychological affects their management style has on their staff. They let good staff go rather than fix their management culture.

Good and on to the target. Life without Barriers deals with the most vulnerable people in our society and they render the service perfect. It was good to be in a supportive and compassionate team,
Pros
Lunches, meeting and supervioson and support were great
Cons
Challenges that clients' bring - issues that are hard to be met systematically eg Immigration issues

The workplace culture appears to be very inconsistent, very few chances to advance within the Organisation. It can be extremely difficult to discuss matters of concern with Upline Managers,
Cons
long hours very little Positive Support from Mangers

Life without barriers was quite rewarding work, taking clients to and from day programs or helping with daily routines. A typical day at work would be understanding clients medications, routines (Morning, Noon and Night) and knowing how to engage when a client is displaying a typical/atypical behaviour. In addition to this, a lot of progress note taking and documentation. I learned lots of progress note taking and feel I have a good understanding of how to deal with challenging violent behaviours. There was not much workplace culture, lots of disconnection between employees due to singular shifts and management being very selective in their communication. The most difficult part of the job was the steep learning curve when dealing with clients. It took a lot of communication with team members out of shift and to other workers to get a good understanding of how to assist clients when they're stuck in a behaviour.

This was a very exciting place to work for. I worked in the day programme and it was never dull. All co workers and managers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job for me was sometimes having to work for extended periods with very complex need clients as not enough staff willing to take on these clients. I really enjoyed the challenge and the successes I had in this role.
