For uni students

Our therapy roles

Our mission is to raise the standard of healthcare in WA

Currently, people with disabilities have poor access to support services, with long wait times, low-quality services, and a lack of choice. Ascend Health Group’s innovative model is boosting access to desperately-needed support services while offering invaluable training and practical experience to university students studying health related degrees. Our therapists play a key role in developing therapeutic interventions with our members in the community as well as helping our students in the early stages of their careers.

Our goal at Ascend Health Group is to help our members wherever possible to transition to a life of independence and community participation. This means that the work that our therapists and support workers can do varies greatly because of the many different abilities and life situations of our members.
