Injured at work?
Plus Social can link you to support services and community groups to complement your medical recovery
Plus Social is a free program for eligible injured workers who have been unable to return to work, or who have returned to work on reduced hours after an extended period.
Operating in metropolitan centres of NSW, the program aims to improve the wellbeing and social connectedness of injured workers. It provides more options for recovery by supporting participants to access a range of social group activities and local services based on their needs and interests. Examples include relaxation, cooking, art and photography classes, health education, financial counselling, relationship counselling and housing assistance.
Plus Social is based on the proven social prescribing model of care and is Australia’s first ever social prescribing pilot program. It complements the medical care and any other health and support services already being accessed. As a pilot program, referrals are only being accepted for a limited time.
