We are a leading community support organisation working alongside people to live the life they aspire to, their way, providing a broad range of support in Homelessness, Disability, Palliative Care, Early Childhood Intervention Services (ECIS), and Early Years and Education service areas. A career with us means you are part of an organisation making a real difference.
The Victorian Family Preservation and Reunification Response (the Response) is funded by the Victorian Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH). The Response enables progress toward the ‘Roadmap for Reform: Strong Families, Safe Children’ which outlines the Victorian Government’s strategy for the reform of the children, youth and family service system.
The Response is implemented by MCM in Western Metro and North/East Metro areas of Melbourne. Teams are placed within the Family Services area in the Homelessness and Family Services Portfolio. Teams support families where children are subject to an unborn report or are birth to 5-years of age.
The Response Practitioner will deliver rapid, culturally safe, flexible and intensive services to children and families using a case management and care team approach. This includes the provision of therapeutic and trauma-informed supports that engage the voice and choice, cultural identity and lived expertise of children and their families and carers. Response Practitioners will also work within a comprehensive evidence-based and monitoring and evaluation framework.
