Aboriginal people are strongly encouraged to apply.
Yorgum was established in 1991 by a group of Aboriginal women, some of whom worked in women’s refuges, who were concerned about the lack of appropriate counselling support for Aboriginal people experiencing spiritual, emotional and psychological pain. They founded a service with a ‘healing’ approach rather than an ongoing, crisis-driven ‘patch-up’ approach.
Yorgum offers all Aboriginal people and their families autonomous, community-based healing services that are culturally secure, trauma-informed and work within an Aboriginal Family Worldview.
This position provides services for Aboriginal people affected by their involvement with the Royal Commission investigating institutional responses to child sexual abuse.
To be considered for the role, you will be able to demonstrate the following experience and abilities:
As a Redress Counsellor, you will have the opportunity to deliver culturally appropriate healing services whilst working with a passionate and dedicated team.
Yorgum is committed to the protection of children and young people.
