What can I expect?

Young person gets support with Centrelink in Case Management, at Twenty10 in Sydney.

Case management is a collaborative and professional relationship focused on creating a safe and non-judgmental space, where you can work towards what’s important to you or to provide support in moving in that direction.

You will work collaboratively with a worker on a case plan in a series of structured appointments.

Your case plan will focus on working towards practical aims like:

  • Advocacy (which is a professional way of ‘sticking up for you’) for persecution/discrimination at school, the workplace or wider spheres
  • Gender transitioning pathways referrals
  • Finding and maintaining housing
  • Staying at school or starting studies
  • Finding employment and/or training
  • How to budget
  • Assist with application for brokerage funds
  • Mental health and primary health issues
  • Legal problems
  • Accessing Centrelink
  • Learning important living skills

All case work sessions follow our Safer Space Guidelines so that everyone feels respected and safe, both physically and emotionally.

Case workers are unable to provide counselling or therapy. If these needs arise during a case meeting, a referral to a counsellor or similar support can be arranged as part of your care plan.

We are open to providing flexible meetings to meet your needs if it fits our availability. 

If it’s a brief intervention, like help with a Centrelink application, it will last for the duration of the requested task.
