Worker Support Service

Worker Support Program - Opal

The Worker Support Program connects workers and their families to the right services - to give them the skills, training, information, and personal support they need.

The program provides 1:1 case management to connect workers and their family members to a range of supports including information, employment support, training, health and wellbeing support and referral to services as needed.
