Since 1991, Yorganop has been Western Australia’s first Aboriginal foster care agency. Yorganop works in partnership with government agencies, Aboriginal families, and our community of carers to provide safe and secure care for Aboriginal children. For 32 years Yorganop has been providing essential services for the increasing high number of vulnerable Aboriginal children in Out-of-Home Care.
Yorganop’s key driver for over 32 years is to enable children, in particular, Aboriginal children in out-of-home care to fulfil their potential and thrive in life (culturally, socially, and emotionally). We achieve this by providing culturally safe, secure, stable, caring homes with carers who understand Aboriginal ways of being and doing. Yorganop carers are supported in providing culturally safe placements through Yorganop’s ongoing cultural training, and immersion in Yorganop’s carer community.
In order to achieve these goals Yorganop needs the best team in place, and is currently recruiting for a Senior Practice Development Officer to join our amazing team.

Your approach will be trauma informed and culturally secure. You will ensure the right to self-determination drives your practice, while promoting the wellbeing of children.
