General Case Management

Case management is a supportive and collborative service offered to clients with complex, overlapping needs. Our case managers support clients through a process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy to identify options and services to meet their holistic needs. We work with clients on all the aspects of their life that influence health and well-being. Subsidised fees are available for clients in financial difficulty, in cases of extreme financial crisis fees are waived. Case management is suitable for anyone over 18 years of age.

Case management enables us to offer clients support, information, referral to specialist services and practical assistance.

  • Accommodation/Housing
  • Domestic & Family Violence
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Mental health
  • Employment

Women & Children Case Management

Women & Children Case Management

Women and Children Case Management recognises the complex relationship and specific needs that exist within the family unit and other close relationships.  In addition to working with families, our "Women & Chidlren Case Manager" also works with individuals who are or have been in a Domestic and Family Violence situation.

Our Case Manager works with individuals and with the family collectively, to  identify and address issues impacting upon the overall health of each person and the family as a whole.  Our definition of health is aligned to that of the World Health Organisation (WHO): "Health is a complete state of physical, mental and social wellbeing, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."  WHO, 1958

Support provided by Women & Children Case Management includes but is not limited to the effects of:

  • Financial Stress
  • Housing Needs
  • Domestic & Family Violence
  • Relationship Management
  • Parenting Concerns

Work & Development Orders

Work & Development Orders

The Work and Development Order (WDO) scheme was developed by Revenue NSW to allow eligible people who have a mental illness, intellectual disability or cognitive impairment, are homeless, are experiencing acute economic hardship, or have a serious addiction to drugs/alcohol/volatile substances to repay their fine debt through unpaid work, treatment or courses through an approved organisation.

Southern Community Welfare is an approved WDO organisation.  

Eligible clients are able to reduce their state debt fines, through certain courses or treatment including:

  • unpaid work for, or on behalf of, an approved organisation
  • medical or mental health treatment in accordance with a health practitioner’s treatment plan
  • educational, vocational or life skills course
  • financial or other counselling
  • drug or alcohol treatment
  • a mentoring program (this option is only available if you are under 25 years of age).

Generally when completing a WDO through SCW the client is engaged in our case management program which then is able to address other aspects of the clients life.  For more information or to find out if you are eligible, please contact our office on 9545 0299.

Toy Donations

Toy Donations

Southern Community Welfare in partnership with the waterfront residents of Sylvania Waters are the fortunate recipients of the annual Sylvania Waters Santa Boat toy drive. 

Toys are collected from the waterfront residens of Sylvania Waters and then distributed to disdvantaged children in the community, either directly through the Southern Community Welfare service, or through other community and charitable organisations, including Southern Cross Kids Camp and Dandelion Support Network.  A huge thanks to all of the waterfront residents at Sylvania Waters.

Christmas Hampers

Christmas Hampers

In partnership with Gymea Baptist Church, each year, Southern Community Welfare is able to bring JOY and Christmas cheer to individuals and families who would benefit from a spectacular and extravagant gift of grace.  Hampers are funded and packaged by Gymea Baptist Church and with the addition of toys from our partnership with the waterfront residents of Sylvania Waters, Southern Community Welfare is able to be a blessing to members of our community.  Hampers are distributed to eligible clients within the Southern Community Welfare service and within the local area.
