Social Work with Kudos

When you work with Kudos, we become part of your team and you become part of ours. No matter where you are today and where you want to go tomorrow, our friendly and experienced team is on your team and we’re here to help.

If your child or young person has Social Work in their NDIS plan, our team of child and young people social workers can work with them and your family to improve their personal situation and home life so that they can have the opportunity to thrive. Our social workers can also help with self esteem, counselling, assessment of skills, navigating the NDIS and introducing other supports that might be beneficial to them.

Child Social Work can provide support and skills development for your whole family, helping to better cope and flourish together, reducing stress and building skills to support each other.

Every child and young person we work with has a program tailored to their unique needs. We meet you wherever works best for you – home, school or even the park. Our team also includes occupational therapists, physiotherapists, specialist support coordinators, and other specialists who work together closely to support you when needed.
