Carers (Crew)

How Does Employment As A Carer (Crew) Through Care Federation Work?

As a carer employed through Care Federation you have a direct relationship with the individual you are supporting and their family. This means your contact (unlike a 'traditional' attendant care agency) is directly with the individual and their family. This involves everything relating to day-to-day care duties including rostering, negotiation of duties, etc. Care Federation exists to empower your relationship with the individual and their family.

Care Federation's key role is to undertake all the administrative aspects of employing you as a carer on behalf of the individual and their family. Our responsibilities include - Paying wages , Superannuation, Workcover, relevant taxes, insurances and ensuring that the appropriate checks are in place and remain current e.g police checks, etc. This provides the opportunity for the individual with a disability and you to have choice and control over the arrangement without us getting in the way!

This facilitates the individual requiring support to happily enjoy their choices and stay in control of making their own decisions, while not having to worry about employment administration.

If you have any queries in relation to:

  • Your wages
  • Taxes
  • Superannuation
  • Workcover
  • If you are interested in becoming a carer and have an individual with a disability that would benefit from employing you through Care Federation
