Farewell Western NSW, Far West and Mid North Coast A&R Staff


The transfer of disability accommodation, respite and supported living staff to two new non-government providers has taken place.

FACS staff delivering services in Western NSW commenced the transfer to LiveBetter on Sunday 3 September. Staff delivering services on the Mid North Coast commenced the transfer to Mid North Coast Disability Services on Tuesday 5 September.

Our heart-felt thanks goes to all the staff who transferred for their hard work and the dedication they have shown as FACS employees, which we know they will continue to demonstrate after transfer. Both organisations are inheriting outstanding workforces and we wish them all the very best in their future with LiveBetter and MNC Disability Services.

We know that they are taking with them a strong client focus and a reputation for great outcomes. The strength and value of the bonds they have created with the people they support cannot be underestimated and with the support of MNC Disability Services and LiveBetter, we are sure they will continue to develop these relationships.

Transferring services to the non-government sector supports the delivery of the NDIS and will enable greater choice for participants. Transferring staff is vital to ensure we retain this skilled workforce and do not disrupt the continuity of service to our clients. That’s why our highest priority through these, and future transfers, has been the ongoing support of staff and clients.
