  • building and maintaining independence
  • interpersonal relationships

Permanent and casual positions are available for Aboriginal people who are interested in making a positive difference in the lives of Aboriginal people living with disability.

DHS provides new staff members with all required training, through on-the-job learning as well as an accredited traineeship program.

We also have an Aboriginal-specific service located in the western suburbs of Adelaide.
