The Support People Ballarat, Bendigo and surrounding areas

Matching you with high-quality support workers to help you live the life you want.

A life with choices, real support and understanding.

At The Support People, we believe that those with a disability deserve to have choice and control over how they live their lives to the best of their ability. This is achieved by more personalised level of care, understanding, respect and empathy, to not only survive independently but to thrive.

The Support People (previously known as Next Step Disability Services) facilitate the recruitment of experienced, qualified support workers, offering a career path and security in exchange for consistency of care for our clients. We take care to be personalised, thoughtful and committed to each individual, to create the best possible daily living experience.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the health risk posed to the people we support and our staff, group activities are currently suspended.  As restrictions ease, we hope to increase our group activities in the community.

Our life skills development programs are operating on a 1:1 support ratio basis.  As the skills programs are currently 1:1 support only, there is limited availability each Thursday at the Alfredton Sports & Recreation Centre for those seeking support to develop their digital technology, numeracy & literacy, cooking and art skills.
