Health & Wellbeing Caseworker Network & Advocacy Support Network

Health and Wellbeing Caseworkers

A health and wellbeing caseworker is a person who can assist you to access services, information and support to improve your health and wellbeing.  They have experience of working with victims and survivors, and understand that your needs can be complex and change over time.  Caseworkers are in place to discuss your needs with you and to help you to access services and support to meet those needs.  These can range form befriending to welfare advice, education and training support, disability aids and psychological therapies.  Caseworkers can also help you to engage with community and voluntary services in your area, and with statutory services too.

Advocacy Support Workers

An advocacy support worker can assist you to engage with legacy processes.  This means they can help you to research events that happened during the conflict, and to communicate with institutions such as the Police Ombudsman, the Coroner and the Public Records Office.  Advocacy Support Workers have experience of working with victims and survivors, and understand the sensitivity and importance of your information needs.

Health and Wellbeing Caseworkers & Advocacy Support Workers can are based in various organisations throughout Northern Ireland.
