We know that the support our Helpers provide every day ensures that some of the most vulnerable people in our community can live rich and fulfilling lives.
Five Good Friends strives to form high quality, long-lasting connections between Members and Helpers.
Our Helpers love their work. They love the variety. They love freedom. They love the support & training. They love that they get to focus on delivering and nurturing real human connections.
We understand it is essential to wrap our arms around Helpers to make sure they feel supported and focus on doing their best work.
Creating the perfect match
Helpers are the glue that binds our network together, and it's in the connection between Members and their Helpers that the magic happens.
Our workforce and rostering teams ensure Helpers and Members can choose whom they work with. We take the time to craft those matches, allowing a meaningful bond and understanding to form between people.
Our teams make sure that Helpers can choose the hours they work and the days. It is a great flexible opportunity.
Learning and Development
We provide Helpers with an extensive range of opportunities to learn and upskill, that in turn develops their business and grows their careers at a self-directed pace.
Our learning and development is done through online courses and webinars, but we also have training facilitators who can arrange training events or 1:1 sessions for a more hands-on experience.
Care connects us, and so can technology. When they are combined, the result is spectacular. Our technology allows Helpers to have everything they need to do a great job in one place, including rosters; Members’ help plans and transparent communication with a Helpers network.
Are you our next all-star Helper?
We value the work our Helpers do.
It’s easy to discount the value of simple day-to-day skills that can make a person a fantastic Helper. If a Helper can bring patience, empathy, good humour, and a dash of life experience to the role – we can train you to do the rest.
If you or someone you know would be an all-star Helper, get in touch with us today on 1300 787 581 or visit.
