Karralika Programs Inc. is a not-for-profit specialist alcohol and other drug organisation that provides programs for people in the Canberra and the surrounding areas since 1978.
We support adults, young people and families to address and recover from alcohol and drug problems through a range of residential and community programs.
Our approach to recovery is multidimensional, supporting our clients to learn about themselves behaviourally, cognitively and emotionally to achieve and sustain positive living. Recovery is an active process of discovery where clients develop a sense of: hope, meaning and purpose for life, community and belonging; and positive identity and pride.
We see the potential in every individual – employees, clients and stakeholders and seek to consult and engage individuals in all aspects of our operations. We actively empower and enable individuals to advise, co-design and refine services, programs and operations so their fullest potential might be realised.
We value: trust and integrity, respect and dignity, quality and accountability, agility and responsiveness, leadership and courage, collaboration and support.
The positions will provide cultural support to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander men and women, and their children, who are participating in our programs. These roles will actively engage our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients, assisting them to better connect with their culture, community and history. These roles will also liaise with Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs)/groups, Elders and community leaders, enhancing opportunities to work more closely with, and/or in partnership.
Some activities will be inclusive of non-Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people participating and working within our programs.
