Please note that, in accordance with s25 of the Anti-discrimination Act 1991 (Qld), it is a genuine occupational requirement that this position is filled by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person.
Are you looking for a job with meaning; one that connects your personal values with an organisation that supports the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our community? Help to make a difference by providing professional case management & case work to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander children, young people & families.
Kurbingui Youth Development Ltd (Kurbingui) is a not-for-profit community service organisation that supports around 13,600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – approximately seven percent of Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population – living in the greater Brisbane, Moreton Bay and South East Regions. Kurbingui has a solid footprint throughout these regions, which began in 2001 with the delivery of various community services covering area such as employment and training, family support, domestic and family violence, alcohol and substance abuse, cultural education and engagement programs, education support for families and children from preschool to tertiary, recreation and sports, early years, youth, women's and men's programs and cultural group activities, and health and nutrition.
The service model is centred around the Family Led Decision Making (FLDM) Framework which focuses on the family's story, knowledge, expertise and vision to develop a single case plan. Our team comprises staff with expertise across mental health, domestic and family violence, group engagement, FLDM, child protection and early childhood to allow the broad range of family needs to be addressed and supported.
The service response centres on a genuine family-led decision-making process involving family, Elders and community (where appropriate) to set the path for positive outcomes. The model appropriately steps families up or down through levels of intervention across the continuum of tertiary to universal family support and acknowledges the important role of community Elders and other support services to nurture and heal families. The service will utilise strong existing partnerships and referral pathways with services and support networks across the catchment.
The primary purpose of the Family Wellbeing Practitioner is to provide quality culturally appropriate professional case management and casework to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander children, young people and families who are accessing the service. This is achieved through offering support, facilitating practical intervention and prevention techniques and strategies from a cultural strength-based and family-led decision-making approach that enhances an individual's capacity and empowers families to sustain positive changes with their parenting and overall relationships.
Based in Zillmere, we offer a competitive remuneration package in line with the 'Fisher' & '316 Regulation' pay scale and other conditions in line with the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010.
