For some individuals part of their NDIS or home care package includes access to outdoor maintenance and gardening. They may require assistance with lawn mowing, weeding and gardening duties. If this is your skillset you can begin by building your profile and network through tappON.
Working as a gardener on tappON is a great way to continue your passion and help clients in need. It’s also a great way to meet people from all walks of life and create ongoing meaningful relationships, perhaps even share some of your green knowledge with a client.
Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gardening and yard maintenance falls in the core supports category and is currently funded per hour of support provided. This means that you can directly negotiate a rate that suits both you and the client.
By getting assistance through a home care package individuals can be home proud, keeping on top of chores around the home to book gardeners direct. If you have a passion for lawns and gardens enquire with our support team to find out how you can start helping people in the Wollongong or Sutherland Shire regions.
