Social Workers can support your emotional wellbeing and help you adjust to your vision loss. We can also put forward your case (advocate) to Government departments on your behalf.
We can help you with:
- Information and assistance for making key decisions about care and education
- Advice and assistance with applying for Government financial supports and schemes
- Advocating your circumstance to Government departments, employment agencies and other organisations
- Connecting with other vision support networks in your community
VisAbility social workers are accredited members of the Australian Association of Social Workers (link opens in new window).
