Social workers will listen to your story and assist you to explore your options and choices. Social workers can provide practical assistance to access services specific to your situation. For example, accommodation, Centrelink payments and services, counselling and support groups, financial assistance and health services
They can also work together with the lawyer to identify and address issues that you might be experiencing as we know that sometimes the legal issue you want help with is only part of the story.
