LiveBetter Community Services is an organisation formed through an amalgamation of several like-minded, regionally based community service organisations that recognised the need for specialist service provision for the people of regional Australia. Delivering a range of aged, disability, carer, child & family, mental health and clinical services, LiveBetter takes a holistic approach to working with customers seeking to ensure that customer needs and preferences are met. As well as service delivery LiveBetter assists customers with information, linking and referrals.
We rely on our teams of dedicated and competent staff to support our customers and our business. We work hard to ensure we attract and retain the best staff possible, we want people who bring energy, initiative and new ideas and who share our values. We believe that a diverse workforce encourages innovation and team work and that all staff should be supported to realise their potential. Our staff come from a wide variety of backgrounds, skills and experience; this diversity allows us to understand our customers and their communities and creates a vibrant and interesting working environment.
