How can a Social worker support you?

Social Workers support people to improve their personal and social well-being. They assist to identify issues that require change and provide linkages and coaching to make change happen. Social Workers have knowledge of human behaviour and development, life cycle stages, families and social networks, disability and health, including mental health.

 

A Social Worker can provide individual counselling, psychoeducation and relaxation strategies, provide coaching on how to engage with the community and participate in out of home activities, develop your daily planning skills, help you to access information and supports, improve your health literacy and lots more!

Did you know that If you have NDIS Improved Daily Living Funding you can engage a social worker to help you overcome challenges. This might look like coaching and counselling to help improve your daily living skills, including doing things around the home and getting out and about yourself, managing your time, money and improving how you engage with services in the community. Social Workers also advise and counsel to reduce your emotional reactions and improve communication skills.
