You can be more than part of your community - be someone making a difference for people in your community.
The Specialist Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Family Violence Advisor Program has been developed to contribute towards recommendations 98 and 99 of the Royal Commission into Family Violence. These recommendations require the establishment of specialist family violence advisors to provide expertise to major mental health and AOD services and to ultimately encourage all three sectors to collaborate through the promotion of shared casework models.
This position will provide advice for workers in the AOD sector within their catchment to identify and respond to family violence with their clients, whether they are experiencing family violence or perpetrating family violence.
Building the capacity of these two sectors with specialist family violence knowledge has the potential to enable earlier recognition and intervention and a more consistent service response to victim-survivors of family violence and perpetrators at whatever point they enter the health and human services systems.
