Social Work Service

Picture of a family

Social work can play an important role in supporting children and families. The social work team is made up of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. Our team will help you identify useful services and resources by focusing on your individual strengths.

This might include connecting you with a service in the community or at TVCC. It could be helping you find possible funding or it could be brief counselling sessions. Service is provided in person, by telephone, in the community, at TVCC, or at your home.

Access to Service

Talk with one of your child’s TVCC therapists about accessing this service.

What to Expect

When a request for service is received, you will be contacted to obtain further information.  You and the social work team member will determine the best way to address your needs.

  • Adjusting to diagnosis of a disability
