Social Work Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to participants to access reasonable and necessary supports to increase independence and promote choice and control. Social Workers work across the lifespan to assist and support people in complex decision making and empowering them to enhance their independence, quality of life, wellbeing, and connection to their families and communities.

At Developing Lives our NDIS Social Workers support participants to connect with their community and accessing any services they require. We work with complexity and spend time working alongside NDIS participants to build capacity and empower participants to engage with services independently. Our services help participants connect across multiple domains including; the justice system; Housing SA and their affiliates; Centrelink and State or Commonwealth concessions; both education and employment providers, and finally; community-based supports. 

Our Social Workers often work alongside Support Coordinators by focusing on the many community, Government and commercial supports that are available for NDIS participants. Social Workers also assist in many cases by facilitating an in-person support assisting with transition into another service or offering, case management of non-NDIS supports or through the provision of our Therapeutic & Counselling Services.

Developing Lives offers a free initial consultation for all new clients. The therapeutic process is personal and at times vulnerable, so it is important for individuals to feel comfortable, confident, and safe during the process. Generally, our services are billed under Support Item Number 15_621_0128_1_3, Improved Daily Living. Provider travel is billed under Support Item Number 15_799_0128_1_3 if it is required. ​

Our services are of particular use where participants may be experiencing complexity due to multiple provider engagement, mental health, communication, homelessness or other behaviors of concern. Referrals can be made via our Contact page or emailing
