The Domestic Violence Specialist Children’s Service (DVSCS) is one of three components of Tangentyere’s Family Violence Prevention Programs (FVPP). The FVPP is an integrated program with components designed to meet the needs of men, women, young people and children who have been affected by issues of domestic and family violence, and also consists of a Men’s Behaviour Change Program, and the Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group.

The DVSCS provides specialist early intervention support for Aboriginal young people, aged between 12 and 18, who have been impacted by domestic and family violence.

By creating age-appropriate and gender-based family and domestic violence critical interventions and youth informed services, the DVSCS is designed to break the inter-generationally embedded cycle of violence with the next generation of young parents so that their children are born into families where the safety and respect of all members of the family are prioritised.

The development and delivery of the Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Children’s Services will complement the work already achieved by the Alice Springs Response to Domestic and Family Violence and will build on strong inter-agency relationships to ensure the best outcomes for children and young people impacted by violence as well as their families and community.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual with excellent communication skills who is committed to working with children and young people impacted by domestic and family violence in Central Australia. They will engage with key stakeholders to promote the program and will work alongside Community Leaders to ensure the program is culturally safe and accepted by individuals, families and communities across the Alice Springs region.
