Social Work

The CF social worker is aware of both the day to day and long-term impact that a chronic health condition can have on those living with CF and can assist with many everyday concerns to try and make life a little easier. Social work support can be accessed as little or often as needed, whilst in hospital or in the community, face to face, virtually, or by email, text or telephone.  

Advice can be given about many available social resources and how to access them, in addition to assistance and advocacy on a range of issues such as:



Supporting young adults from paediatric to adult care, co-working with the CF Youth Worker and Clinical Psychologists.



Applying for student grants or benefits and making sure the college or university know about any specific needs that might arise due to having cystic fibrosis.
