Working Together Well

A guide to building a stronger working relationship

Inclusion Melbourne partnered with researchers at Southern Cross University, the University of New South Wales, and RMIT University to create Working Together Well. This project drew from the priorities determined by people with disability, and support workers, following a research project about relationships and recognition in paid support relationships.

This guide provides young people with disability and their support worker with the opportunity to have their say about what is important in their life. The activities in this guide can be completed together, and aim to help two people get to know each other when they start working together. This guide can be used at any point in a relationship to guide a pair in working together in a way that is mutually beneficial to both people.

The publication is also available through the National Disability Services Innovative Workforce Fund
