BRQ undertakes social security case work and representation for clients who are extremely vulnerable and unable to advocate for themselves. Whether or not we can represent a client is also determined by whether their case has merit and the limitations of our capacity.
Our social worker provides services to clients in need of social work support in relation to their Centrelink problem, such as brief counseling or referrals to their local community agencies.
