Our Family Social Worker Service
One-on-One Support and Counselling
The Family Social Worker walks alongside all family members (patient, parents, guardians, siblings, grandparents and others) that stay with Childhood Cancer Support when the patient is receiving their treatment. Our service supports families on their return home with both personal contact, information and referrals to local support services.
This service offers practical, therapeutic and general supports to families which include counselling, parent, sibling and extended family support (e.g. spending time with siblings, listening, organising fun activities), informal opportunities for families to meet each other and assistance to access other supports as required.
