About Us

At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower. We offer a comprehensive network of services and seek to ensure the provision of high quality services that will bring about significant improvements in the life experience of the young people, children and families/caregivers with whom we work.

We are leaders in the industry, are recognised for innovation and inclusivity and provide some of the best career opportunities available in Child, Youth and Family Services.

About the Program

A key recommendation of the Royal Commission and the Roadmap for Reform was to establish a network of Support and Safety Hubs (‘Hubs’) across Victoria to provide a new way for women, children and young people experiencing family violence, and families who need assistance with the care and wellbeing of children to access the services they need to be safe and supported. These Hubs are known as The Orange Door. The Orange Door delivers a fundamental change to the way we work with women, children and families, and men.

The Orange Doors brings together different workforces and practices to create an integrated Orange Door team and a consolidated intake point in each Orange Door area to create a new way of support for:

  • Women, children, young people and families experiencing family violence;
  • Perpetrators of family violence;
  • Families in need of support with the care, development and well-being of infants, children and young people.

The Orange Door team includes a mix of staff employed by FSV and staff employed by CSOs, Aboriginal services and DHHS.  For each launch site the size of the team will vary to reflect the local needs.

The Position

This position involves both the management and coordination of an Integrated team as well as the support, mentoring, development of Anglicare Practitioners and Senior Practitioners, in a matrix supervision model. The Team Leader will be responsible for providing practice guidance and leadership to The Orange Door Practitioners across The Orange Door in the delivery of program requirements, to maintain the quality of service provided to people accessing the Orange Door for support.

This will involve the requirement to collaborate closely with The Orange Door Leadership team to provide an integrated and client focused service for women, children, young people and families experiencing family violence and families in need of support with the care, development and well-being of children.

Within the integrated model, the Team Leader will also work collaboratively, with an integrated approach across the service system, maintaining positive relationships with partnering organisations and developing new relationships with key agencies.
