Source Kids is proud to be partnering with Hireup to bring you information, news and updates to help you navigate the world of support for your child as well as explore other topics encountered as we navigate this journey of raising children and young adults with disability.
Hireup is an online platform revolutionising the way people with disability find, hire and manage their support workers. They have employed, trained and verified over 10,000 support workers to ensure you receive the best support possible. They’re also working hard to create positive change for people with disability, they believe in going broad, impacting as many people as possible, and building programs and solutions that directly engage people with disability and their right to self-direction, enabling them to enact change that is individually relevant to their own life.
