Welfare Support Referral

Description: Welfare support referral is an umbrella term that is used to describes the referral of individuals to organisations that offer social welfare, legal and financial support. Welfare support referral can help individuals to address issues which can directly impact upon their health, wellbeing and quality of life. Examples of welfare support referral services and activities include debt management, reporting violations of housing standards, avoiding homelessness, employment or education/training, access to healthcare, and engagement with interventions from social services. Social welfare, legal and financial advice can be targeted to support particular groups, such as individuals who suffer from problematic drug or alcohol use, or young people experiencing social disadvantage. Advice services may be located together with, or independently from, health services.
