Are you a disability support worker?

If so, we'd love to hear about your experience during COVID-19.

As part of our research program on employment and health, we are running a short on-line survey asking support workers about their experience during COVID-19.

The survey is anonymous and takes 10-15 minutes. You are asked about the impact of COVID-19 on your work, your health and your general well being. Your contribution is central to this project and your opinions matter.

Help us generate compelling evidence on how we can maintain disability support workers’ well-being and healthy working conditions in times of crisis.

What do I need to do?

The study involves completing 3 surveys in total. The first survey  is a 10-15 minute online survey which you will complete now, and then again in 3- and 9-months’ time. The survey is anonymous and only the research team has access to the results.

Am I eligible?

If you are over 18 years of age and currently work as a disability support worker in Australia then we want to hear from you.

Why should I participate?

Participants will be entered into a prize-draw to win a $50 Visa debit card as a thank you for your participation in this research project. Findings from this study will provide information that can inform how best to respond to COVID-19 and other future crises to minimise the impact on disability support workers and people with disabilities. We need this information to develop strategies and recommendations on how disability support workers can maintain their health and well-being in times of crises.
