Like Family specialises in companionship and social support and screens potential Social Carers through a comprehensive onboarding process involving a video interview and background check.
What is Like Family?
Like Family is an online platform that exists to connect people who need care, with people who really care. Members sign up to our platform looking for support services and we match them with Social Carers in their area who can assist them in fulfilling their needs and achieving their goals.
What type of work would I be doing?
It's important to note that our Social Carers are not qualified or insured to provide services such as personal care or medical care. More information on that can be found here.
Like Family Social Carers specialise in companionship and social support, meaning you could be assisting members with tasks such as:

- Social activities, like movies, fishing, and going to concerts
- Cooking and meal preparation
- Help with appointments (eg. doctors) and errands (eg. grocery shopping)
- Light exercise, such as walks
- Local transport and getting around
- Assistance with Cleaning
- Assistance with Gardening
What does the application process involve?
First, you will need to create a Social Carer account, where we will ask you to tell us a bit about yourself and your qualifications, as well as your interest in working as a Social Carer. We then review this application and, if we think you are a suitable candidate, will invite you to attend one of our online inductions.
Our inductions are a chance for us to assess your problem-solving and interpersonal skills. We ask questions about how you might handle certain situations while working and assess your understanding of what it means to work for an NDIS provider. If successful, you then just need to complete the rest of your profile and provide us with the relevant documentation and checks before we can begin matching you with our wonderful Members. Documentation and check requirements vary slightly from state to state, but a list of everything we require can be found here.
