About the position

Covering the Central Grampians and Wimmera area (Stawell and St Arnaud), the objective of the Intensive Case Manager Homelessness is to achieve through the provision of intensive case management (ICM) support and related assistance, the maximum possible degree of self-reliance, empowerment and independence for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Intensive Case Management is often differentiated from standard case management by smaller caseloads and a higher frequency of client contacts. The responsibility for leading and coordinating the involvement of multiple services with clients who have high and complex needs is also a critical aspect of the ICM role.

ICM processes must ensure that multiple services are delivered in a coordinated manner and that clients can access such services in accordance with their needs. Services provided by the Intensive Case Manager Homelessness may include therapeutic support, crisis resolution, personal care, life skills training, information and advocacy and/or assistance with accessing appropriate long-term housing, training and employment opportunities.

The position will provide information and/or referrals to other service providers as relevant and appropriate. Homelessness is the state in which a person does not have access to safe and secure shelter. Safe and secure shelter is shelter of a standard that does not damage a person’s health, threaten their personal safety or marginalise them through failing to provide access to adequate personal amenities or the economic and social supports that a home normally provides.
