A Rewarding Career
Seton Villa is a small organisation providing support to around 40 people across our services. We have expanded recently to provide SIL to RASAID, another SDA provider. The people we support do not present with significant challenging behaviours. We recognise the unique abilities and gifts of each one of the people we support and each of our community support workers is also a key worker for one or two of the residents.
We encourage our staff to connect well with the people we support to create happy homes for the residents and happy workplaces for our staff. We believe choosing to have a career in the disability sector is one of the most rewarding experiences, you can truly make a difference in their lives.
We offer ongoing training and support to staff through external training providers including TAFE and through in-service education. Where possible our policy is to promote from within and to encourage people to further their careers.

Why join Seton Villa
Seton Villa was established in 1966. In 1984 it was one of the first accommodation services for people with intellectual disability in NSW to establish supported group homes in the community.
Some of the people who came to live at Seton Villa in 1966 are still with us and some of our staff have been working with those and newer residents for more than 20 years.
We aim to be an employer of choice by creating happy homes for our residents and the staff who support them. Inspired by the spirit of St Vincent de Paul and St Louise de Marillac, Seton Villa’s purpose is to empower lives and connect people by providing high quality, person-centred support within our group homes and day services, on behalf of the Daughters of Charity. If you are interested in becoming part of the Seton Villa story, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
