Dear Ms Gosling

Re: Disability Support Worker position

I am writing to apply for the position of Disability Support Worker at Uplift Community Services as advertised recently on communityjobs.com.au.

I am a caring, professional and experienced disability support worker with a Certificate IV in Community Services Work, four years of experience in a support role and a passion for improving the quality of life of disadvantaged individuals.

In my role as Disability Support Worker at Nelly Bay Community Services, I am responsible for caring for and supporting clients with physical and mental disabilities. This involves developing personalised support programs and managing various household and personal care tasks, including cooking, cleaning, shopping, administering medication and assisting with mobility, hygiene and feeding.

I also engage clients in various community access activities and nurture partnerships with community organisations and businesses to advocate for their needs and goals. For example, I successfully lobbied the local council to improve disabled access at local shopping centres.

Working at Nelly Bay has given me an even greater passion and determination to help support the needs and quality of life of the disabled. It has also helped me hone my verbal and non-verbal communication skills with culturally diverse clients and those for whom communication is challenging. I am a very patient person with great empathy and a genuine desire to help.

I have a current First Aid Certificate and Manual Handling certification. I also have a current driver’s licence and my own transport.

I have attached my resume and I look forward to discussing the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
