How our social workers can help you

Here’s a quick snapshot of how our social workers can support you. Click here to read the full scope of social work services.

Social work services Quick definition
Psychosocial assessment

Our social workers take a holistic approach to psychosocial assessments. We consider your physical support needs, background history, social situation, mental health, and emotional wellbeing. All this information will help you and us better understand why you’re struggling, and what the best steps are for moving forward.

After completing your assessment, we’ll put together a report with recommendations for future funding.

Working through life transitions

There are changes in life that are scary. And unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of help out there to guide us through these changes. Especially when we get older.

Our social workers want to support you during your tough times. We’ll discuss your different options, connect you with relevant supports, and open the conversation so you can feel comfortable enough to ask questions.

Navigating supports and services Our social workers step in to simplify the process for accessing mainsteam and community services. We ensure you get access to the correct services and help them understand the best way to support you.
Risk and crisis management, safeguarding Our social workers respect your right to choose how you want to live. We also understand that you only have limited choices available.
Risk and crisis management for families and carers Our social workers help you develop risk management and safety plans and connect you with services that provide additional support.
Capacity building Our social workers provide short-term therapeutic support and connect you with longer term therapy and medical support, when needed.
Capacity building for families and carers Our social workers understand the value you bring to the table. That’s why we focus on strengthening you and building your ability to care for your loved one.
Individualised planning

Our social workers will facilitate your own Circle of Support and understand the importance of having healthy relationships. They assist individuals with little or no family contact to meet with unpaid support networks, providing you the opportunity to build strong and lasting relationships.

Should you require additional funding in your NDIS plan, we’ll support you by submitting a recommendation letter for future funding in your new plan.

Episodic case management

Our social workers could step in to coordinate stakeholder meetings and help you attend them. This gives you a voice in how you want everyone to support you. It also keeps you updated during every step of the process.

One-off consultations with our social workers could make the difference. We look at your current situation, review your support system, and make recommendations on what can improve.
