The filling of this position is intended to constitute a special / equal opportunity measure under section 8(1) of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) and section 65 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA). This position is therefore only open to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicants.
Australian Red Cross is part of the largest humanitarian movement in the world seeking to build a better society based on people helping people.
The Aboriginal Families Thrive Program has been designed by Red Cross and Tiraapendi Wodli. Tiraapendi Wodli is the Port Adelaide Aboriginal Leadership Group (established in 2018) working to improve community safety and wellbeing for Aboriginal families living in the Port Adelaide and western area, using a justice reinvestment approach.
The Aboriginal Families Thrive Program is a strengths-based, early intervention program which connects Aboriginal families with ‘Aboriginal Community Advocates’ and other services to work side-by-side with the family to improve their ability to foster positive learning and education experiences for their children.
The Support Officer role is responsible for working closely with the Aboriginal Families Thrive Coordinator and Aboriginal families involved in the program to improve the ability of the families to foster positive experiences of learning and education for their children.
The position will work closely with Aboriginal family members, Aboriginal community-controlled organisations, schools, children’s centres, non-government organisations and government services to deliver coordinated and culturally connected support to Aboriginal families living in the western Adelaide metropolitan area.
Work for purpose, know that the work you do enables Red Cross to support and empower people and communities in times of vulnerability.
You can access flexible working arrangements and generous salary packaging options that can increase your take home pay by paying certain expenses using pre-tax dollars.
