A day in the life of Access & Support Worker, Angeline


We recently welcomed Angeline into the position of Access and Support Worker.

While this role may be a new opportunity for Angeline, she isn’t new to Star Health, having previously worked within the high-rise support program in Windsor prior to moving across to take up her new position based out of Mitford Street.

The Access and Support program assists people from disadvantaged and marginalised communities, including people who are financially disadvantaged and people from LGBTQI and culturally diverse communities.

Angeline advocates for people to gain services and support based on what’s important to them, their health and well-being goals.

“I enjoy working with a broad range of clients. I like seeing clients feel supported and heard. Small changes in their lives can make a big difference,” says Angeline.

Like most working within the health space, every day for Angeline is unique. From planning, co-ordinating and attending outreach with other services, checking in with clients, making referrals and advocacy, Angeline enjoys the varying responsibilities her role brings, particularly when there’s face to face interaction with clients.

Angeline recognises that one of the biggest strengths of community health is the available referral pathways.

With a background in social work, Angeline enjoys the variety of skills used every day and the collaboration with her colleagues within Star Health and in the broader area.

Outside of work, Angeline enjoys cooking, reading, long walks and being out in nature.

If you would like to seek support from Angeline please contact {STAR Health on 9525 1300]. If you’re under 65 you can refer directly to STAR Health.  For those aged 65+ you can access our services through My Aged Care.
