Welfare Workers help marginalised, isolated and disadvantaged people access social welfare services and community support. Your daily job involves working one-on-one with clients, liaising with case managers and doing the associated paperwork.
As a Welfare Worker you’ll be interviewing clients and assessing their difficulties, then referring them to the appropriate government agencies and welfare services such as housing, social security, education and healthcare. You could specialise in child welfare, youth services, ageing, disability, or mental health.
There are 7 courses available for people who want to become a Welfare Worker.
