At CatholicCare Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains we are committed to making sure no one is left behind.
We have the people, the resources and the plans in place to make a real difference in the lives of people who find themselves facing difficult circumstances.
We are a team of people who are passionate about what we do and truly care about people - no matter where they come from, what they look like or how they see the world.
This is not just what we say, this is what our clients tell us.
Your experience as a Family Preservation Caseworker and genuine desire to make a difference in people’s lives is what drives you to apply for this position.
You have the know-how and the connections to help very vulnerable families access the support they need and to keep children safe.
You have a warm personality and easily gain the trust and confidence of vulnerable people. You maintain calm and the ability to problem solve in extremely difficult and high stress situations.
And your values align with ours.
If you have all of this, along with the right experience and qualifications, and the opportunity feels like the perfect fit for you, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
Our Family Preservation Caseworker works closely with vulnerable families to protect at-risk children and break the cycle of disadvantage.
You will use a therapeutic casework approach to help strengthen the functioning of families whose children are at risk of significant harm and being placed in out-of-home care.
You will work alongside families to ensure children are safe and cared for in their home, while supporting their parents to access the resources they need for positive behaviour change.
You build strong relationships with families, visiting them in their home in times of crisis and as part of routine support.
Fixed term, full-time opportunity until 30 June 2024 and based in Western Sydney. The positions may be extended pending funding arrangements.
