Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Disability Case Management
This program provides case management to culturally and linguistically diverse clients with a disability. The program assists clients to manage their ongoing disability needs which impact on their life and their families.
The program provides the one-to-one assistance of a case manager to individual clients and their families with a person-centred and family oriented approach.
Referrals are made to appropriate disability or mainstream services to meet clients and carers' needs. The aims of case management are to raise the awareness of client rights to services within the local community, link them into ethnic or mainstream community programs, work together with clients, caregivers, service providers and government departments as required in order to achieve the client goals and fulfil their needs.
The case manager co-ordinates services to achieve the best outcome for clients. Client disability needs and choices are supported and advocated for through case management. The case manager could also provide secondary consultation to other service providers and professionals to enhance the meeting of the client's needs.
