Individual Case Work
Individual support will be provided to families who have complex needs, are experiencing hardship or are at risk of crisis. Support will respond to needs that have been identified with the family and will be documented in a case management plan. Through tailored support the family will have ownership of their future plan and engagement, with the case worker walking alongside family. This will be short term support working towards engagement.
