Life Without Barriers restructure: Disability Mental Health SES – South Region

The CPSU NSW has been advised of proposed job cuts in Disability Mental Health (DMH) SES – South Region following a consolidation of Life Without Barriers (LWB) services. Particularly, there will be a potential reduction of one Disability Support Leader in the Region and seven Disability Support Worker roles.

The CPSU NSW understands that members are concerned about how LWB has conducted consultation around the proposed changes so far. Your union has conveyed this to LWB, emphasising issues with notice and timing of meetings.

Members are encouraged to provide feedback on the changes proposed by LWB through the union. LWB must genuinely consider all feedback presented to them. The union’s feedback will be on behalf of members at large and no individual members will be identified.

Members who are directly affected can also seek support from the CPSU NSW.

The CPSU NSW can be contacted via the Member Service Centre via email at or by phone on 1800 772 104.
