Are you looking to work with an awesome team of empathetic people who are passionate about supporting the Stolen Generations? Experience working and playing in the beautiful Kimberley.
The Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corporation is a community-owned and controlled organisation that consists of members of the Stolen Generations and their families from the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The corporation offers activities, projects, and services that acknowledge the experiences of members of the Stolen Generations and help them come to terms with it. The corporation has a Link-Up Service that organises family reunification and other reunions and activities for people of the Stolen Generation across the Kimberley. KSGAC provides support services to victims of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse through the Redress Scheme.
KSGAC has been engaged by the Department of Social Services to provide free, trauma-informed, culturally appropriate targeted counselling support for First Nations Peoples with a disability, their families and carers. The delivery of these services will be primarily in person.
The Disability Royal Commission was established in April 2019 in response to community concern about widespread reports of violence against, and the neglect, abuse and exploitation of, people with disability.
Hearing from people with disability, families, support people, organisations and the broader community helps the Royal Commission understand the extent and the impact of violence, neglect, abuse and exploitation against people with disability.
The Royal Commission acknowledges that coming forward and sharing their experience is a big step and has put services in place to support people with disability, their families and carers … and this is where your local knowledge and connection to community could really make a difference.
We are looking for a suitable team member for our Kununurra office with a qualification in Psychology, Social Work or similar discipline.
Aboriginal people with relevant experience and/or working toward qualifications are encouraged to apply. The ability to travel is essential.
Knowledge/experience working with Indigenous organisations and an understanding of the impacts of removal policies would be an advantage.
This position is subject to funding via the Department of Social Services.
Any questions about the position please contact Catherine Higgins on 0499 006 741.
