Get a support worker

Why this is important

Support workers can help you with support needs connected to your court case.

This might include:

  • support to comply with bail conditions, including housing, mental health, drug and alcohol support and accessing housing services
  • reminders about court cases
  • getting your information together to support plea hearings
  • getting things on track so you are in a better position at the end of your court matter.

What to do

Getting a support worker can be complicated.

Ask a lawyer or someone you trust to help connect you with a support worker. 

You may also want to get in touch with a disability advocacy organisation who will be able to give you expert advice on the NDIS and disability services landscape.
