Within the Social Work team, Social Workers work with individuals having a disability and their families/guardians, to provide support in relation to their presenting concerns in a holistic and effective way. The team aims to reach the desired objectives of the service user and his/her family/carer through assessment, short-term and/or long-term interventions depending on presenting need, while working in a multi-disciplinary approach with other professionals within and beyond the Agency.


The team seeks to promote the recognition, integration and social inclusion of the persons with a disability as a full member of society and the communities that they form part of. In adherence with the Agency’s holistic and person-centred approach, the Social Work team provides individualised support services that enable and empower persons with disability to recognise their abilities, realise their vision and enhance their quality of life. The team strives to advocate for and uphold community inclusion, as this provides a diverse community. This also ensures that everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires.



The Social Work team has multiple roles in assisting service users. These include, but not limited to, the following:


  • Coordination: Supports persons having a disability and their families in decision-making processes that affect them, and coordinates formal and informal service provision.
  • Advocacy: Provides advocacy services along with, or on behalf of, a person with disability whose rights to services or opportunities may actually or potentially be compromised. This service includes assisting such persons to participate in all aspects of community life (education, employment, recreation, home, social and more).
  • Screening and Assessment: Provides screening and assessment in the areas of community involvement, social inclusion, emotional wellbeing, education and employment, mobility and accessibility, communication difficulties, learning difficulties and other therapeutic interventions.
  • Interventions: Plans and delivers intervention based on the individualised needs of the referred person with disability.
  • Review: Conducts and/or participates in regular reviews to ensure effective service provision in relation to Agency service users.


Apart from interventions and assessments within the community, the Social Work team within Aġenzija Sapport complements the other services offered by the Agency through the required professional services.
