SACSUNSWSurvey_Social_1080x1080px

The Australian Services Union has commissioned researchers from UNSW to complete a survey for Community and Disability Service workers, and PeakCare subscribers are invited to share your experiences.

The survey is being conducted by researchers from UNSW Sydney. The ASU has commissioned it to better understand worker experiences and continue to improve working conditions and pay for SACS workers.

Share the survey link with your social and community services colleagues who might like to participate, as the more people who share their thoughts, the more accurately research can identify issues affecting the sector and opportunities for improvement.

Participants will be given the option to go into a prize draw to win one of 5 x $100 online shopping vouchers (Coles-Myer), as a token of appreciation.

For most people, the survey will take around 15 minutes to complete, however, it may take a few minutes longer for people who choose to write a lot of comments. The survey will close on Friday, 8th December.

If, after reading the Participant Information you would like further information or to talk to one of the researchers, please email Natasha Cortis (UNSW) via n.cortis@unsw.edu.au

Choosing not to take part will not affect your relationship with the ASU, your employer, or The University of New South Wales.

This research has been reviewed and approved by The University of New South Wales Human Research Ethics Panel. If you would like further information about the study please contact the research team n.cortis@unsw.edu.au. If you have any complaints or concerns about the research study please email humanethics@unsw.edu.au or phone +61 2 9385 6222 quoting the following number iRECS4629.
