Community Access Staff

Community Access Staff work both part time and full time. They provide day to day support to adults with developmental disabilities, on a one to one basis. Activities are highly individualized to the person being supported. Generally, activities focus on the development of life skills, and community access. They might be supporting someone in a volunteer position, helping them to access recreational activities, or helping an individual to discover community resources that are relevant to their interests and personal goals. In this position, the worker has a high level of independence, as support occurs in the community and is not based in a facility where they would have more regular involvement with other staff members. Generally, they will work closely with the family or support home of the individual to ensure a strong team approach to support.
