What NDIS Social Workers Do
Our AASW and NDIS registered Social Workers assist those who are having challenges associated with their interpersonal and overall ability to cope. Aiming to enhance quality of life in a range of settings to facilitate empowerment.
The NDIS’ person-centred approach lines up perfectly with the values, qualifications and skill set of our experienced Social Worker. Working across the life spans, our local NDIS Social Workers can offer support to children, adults, families, carers, groups and communities. Most importantly, Social Workers embody the NDIS’ intended purpose of empowering participants (and their networks) to achieve their needs, goals and aspirations.
Social Workers have the knowledge, skills and expertise to compliment existing supports at all levels including local area coordinators, planners, community development and direct practice roles.
Our social workers help participants and their families identify needs as well as facilitating emotional, social and practical support; typically bringing a sense of safety and stability during times of hardship.

The NDIS is only available to those under the age of 65, who have an assessed and diagnosed disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

Once NDIS approved, most participants will work with an NDIS Planner and/or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to develop a support plan. Each participant develops an individualised plan that identifies the specific outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports they require; often an occupational therapy assessment (click here) can aid in this process of identifying needs.
The NDIS is unique in that participants are now given choice and control over the supports that they receive. If funding for “Improved Daily Living” is included in the plan, then this often means that Social Work is covered. The next step is to speak with My Care Provider to book an appointment.
