Live with Great Mates
Whether you’re ready to live independently or looking for a short break in your home away from home, we can help. No matter where you are on your journey, we’re here with you every step of the way. Best of all, you’ll have the choice and flexibility to suit your lifestyle.
With Supported Independent Living or SIL, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy life in one of our lovely homes, either independently or in a shared community with others. Our friendly, dedicated Great Mates team will sleepover and be there for you with 24/7 support when and where you need it.
Independent Living Options or ILO means being independent has never been easier. While ILO doesn’t provide the home for you, we’re here to support you in your home through other means such as a flexible support package tailored to suit you, your care needs and lifestyle.
Life with Great Mates
We embrace life to its fullest and encourage you to make the most out of every day. With Great Mates, you’ll have the opportunity to experience new things, travel to new places and meet new people along the way.
Be part of the Great Mates Society. This is our recreation club that’s dedicated to having fun, fun and more fun. You’ll have a blast with Great Mates as we do exciting activities and events together.
Our members make the Great Mates Society what it is. We all gather around to plan upcoming events to make sure our social calendar is packed with a variety of fun things to do for everyone, no matter your abilities or interests. Every member is included and encouraged to have their say and share ideas for open discussion. And of course, you’re not obligated to attend every event. If you can make it, that’s great.
Travel with Great Mates
Visit great places with great people! We’ll support you to have your dream holiday with your mates. Travelling with Great Mates is open to everyone, no matter your ability, skills or interests. If there’s somewhere special you want to go and an itinerary you have in mind, chat with us about how we can support you on your trip. If you’d rather come along with us on a holiday already organised, we’d love to have you join us.
Work with Great Mates
An important step towards independence is joining the workforce as a working, contributing member to the community. With so many jobs and roles available, it can be difficult to pick one that is right for you. With Great Mates, we’ll help you develop skills, knowledge and confidence that will be valuable for any job. You’ll also build a set of job-specific skills with opportunity to be part of our extended Great Mates family as a paid employee in one of our Supported Employment business initiatives.
We’re always excited to welcome new Great Mates to our rapidly growing team. We currently have multiple great opportunities for experienced and dedicated Lifestyle Assistants.
This is an exciting and rewarding role where you’ll be working a 7-day week roster across several locations in the Gold Coast region. You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day care and development of our participants, as well as supporting the internal Great Mates team as a key member. If you’re someone who is always up for a challenge and thrives working with people, both individually and as part of a team, this is for you.
