Ready to Make a Difference?

If you're ready to turn your carer experience into a fulfilling journey and get paid for your dedication, we're here to support you.

Join Our Growing Community:

At Life Without Barriers, we believe in the power of carer experience. We're on a mission to create a supportive network of carers who are ready to empower, mentor, and earn while doing what they love.

This is an innovative and exciting way of supporting foster carers never seen before in the Goulburn / Ovens Murray region. As a Hub Home Provider, you will provide support to families participating in Life Without Barriers’ Mockingbird Family Constellation.

The Hub Home Provider is key in the development of a healthy community of foster and kinship carers focused on the health, safety, growth and permanence of participating children and young people. This will include providing support to foster and kinship carers while enabling self-care that promotes healthy retention of carers.

The Mockingbird Family Constellation program offers a unique and valuable opportunity for carers to simultaneously enhance their caregiving skills and gain paid professional experience.

A Hub Home Provider is a cornerstone of our Mockingbird Family Constellation program. You will reside in a home that is conducive and appropriate for providing support to satellite families participating in the constellation. Your role is to offer essential support services to foster and kinship families while promoting self-care, ensuring the healthy retention of carers. Your commitment to creating a safe and nurturing environment is the key to the success of this program.

What We Offer:

Mentorship: Share your knowledge, wisdom, and compassion with other carers who are just starting their journey.

Support: Be a pillar of strength and guidance for those who need it most.

Earnings: Get paid for your valuable mentorship and support - $36 per hour + penalties

Community: Join a diverse and caring community of individuals who are passionate about making a difference.

Rewards: Not only will you help others, but you'll also earn for your invaluable support.
