Social Work available in Queensland

Allied Health and Clinical Early Childhood News

Our Social Workers are there to support you and your family. Social Work is available by referral – Speak to one of your Northcott Queensland Therapists if you require support.

Sometimes people living with a disability and their family members need help to cope with the challenges in their daily lives.

We can provide:

  • Support for families working through a new diagnosis
  • Confidential counselling and support for children and families
  • Facilitating peer support and networking
  • Consultation with other service providers
  • Accessing community resources

A social worker can assist you with the following things:

  • Confidential Counselling – We provide access to confidential counselling and support for children and families in a number of areas. These areas include adjustment and change, loss and grief, self-esteem, stress management and coping strategies, parenting strategies, relationship issues.
  • Facilitating peer support and networking – Peer support is when people provide knowledge, experience, emotional, social or practical help to one other.
  • Accessing Community Resources – This might be anything from helping you to find support groups and other groups within your community who have had similar experiences to your own. Or it might mean helping you find a playground to suit the needs of your child. Whatever it is you need, we’ll help you find it.
  • Accessing community resources – Our social workers can help access community supports and resources that can assist you and your family.
