What we can offer:

  • case managers establish a positive collaborative relationship with the person with a disability and their support network.
  • assistance to identify, link with and organise the supports clients need to achieve their goals. Individual goals may include greater independence, learning new skills, accessing education, respite or getting out and about in the community.
  • support and assistance building capacity for the person and their networks to self –manage.

How long is case management provided for?

Short-term case management is usually for a period for up to three months but can be extended if needed.

Our service is episodic and time limited. This means that case management will end when your goals have been met or you no longer require support. If your goals change or you have new goals to meet after case management has ceased, you can always call in to make a new request for service.

Who is eligible?

  • Children aged up to 18 years of age with a diagnosed disability and complex care needs.
  • Children need to live in the Melton, Wyndham, Hobson’s Bay or Maribyrnong local government areas in Victoria.

How to access this service:

Referrals are accepted from various sources including the families themselves, schools, medical professionals and other service providers.

Contact the Disability Intake Worker on (03) 9680 8444 or disabilityintake@mackillop.org.au for more information.

If the child is deemed eligible for service and the guardians consent has been received by the Disability Intake worker, a referral will be taken. The child will then be placed on the needs register until the case can be allocated to a case manager.
