Our service model
The AQA service model draws on our decades of experience supporting people to live well with spinal cord injuries and other complex conditions. We build partnerships.
How we operate
AQA is a quality accredited and registered service provider with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).
Wheelchair Skills days
Other courses and events
AQA also delivers the disability specialised motivation and goal setting course Discovering the Power in Me, a range of capacity building courses under the Living Well Project, organises regular community disability expos that we call What's Out There Days, and facilitates monthly Community Network get-togethers across Victoria.
Our support workers
We resource people to live well, and people includes our support workers. Our staff come from all walks of life and represent a broad range of ages and backgrounds.
What support workers do
Our support workers get to know people and help them - at home, in their local communities, and sometimes when travelling for business or pleasure. You may find yourself taking someone to an appointment, helping them get ready for work in the morning, or preparing an evening meal.
What support workers need
Prior experience of disability support work is helpful but what you need most is reliability and a wish to connect with people. As one of our longest-serving support workers explains: To be a carer, you need to have it in your heart.
