Ā mātou rōpū (About our team)

Want to make a difference? Live Life Disability Support provides support to disabled people to live life out and about across the Nelson Marlborough region.

You’ll be helping people to join in community activities and events, drive people to appointments and catch-ups, as well as supporting people with their personal care and household jobs.

Knowing you’re making a positive impact in someone’s life can truly have the same effect on your own. 

In addition to the above:

  • You can work in the way that works best for you - whether that’s full-time or part-time, or morning, afternoon/evening, overnight or casual shifts.
  • You’ll be supported to achieve your Levels 2, 3 and 4 Health and Wellbeing Certificate.

So, if you’re looking for a role that benefits you as well as those you’ll be around each day, we reckon this is it.
