She assists clients with engagement and trust issues, multiple disabilities, and complex support needs.
Before her social work placements began, Tamanna had no idea what career pathway would be best for her. She considers herself fortunate that both of her work placements were disability focused and that she got to challenge myself and develop her self-confidence and personal skills to grow further as a practitioner. After finishing her Social Work degree, she worked as an in home family support worker for a year. After this, she took on a role as an NDIS Support Coordinator / Specialist Support Coordinator to help support people with complex support needs, including multiple disabilities and severe mental health issues. Tamanna later accepted a position as a Connection Coordinator to better support people in hard to reach communities. Here she played a significant role in building NDIS awareness in rural and remote areas. During this time she worked closely with a UNSW research team and was able to build strong connections with many homeless people and different services throughout NSW.
