Little Dreamers is working to improve the quality of life for Young Carers and Special Siblings across the country.
Our vision? To ensure that every single Young Carer around the world is supported by someone or something by 2030.
We are Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, supporting young people between 4 – 25 years across six support programs. Over the past 10 years, Little Dreamers has become a game changing force in the Young Carer space, developing internationally recognised best practice programs, advocating for legislation change and changing the lives of thousands of Young Carers around Australia.
Whatever the support service, a common thread runs through everything we do - that young people should have access to the childhood that everyone deserves. Every Little Dreamers program works towards supporting Young Carers outside of their caring role, ensuring that these young people, have the same access to opportunities that their non-caring peers have.
With rapid growth, Little Dreamers is looking to expand our Dream Team and for our newest addition we are specifically looking for a Family Support Worker based in Miranda, NSW.
The Family Support Worker is responsible for managing a case load of families and Young Carers, delivering support, conducting outreach to community organisations and managing the development and delivery of allocated programs.
This role aims to focus on supporting families; working closely with high risk, high need families; developing community organisation partnerships and collaboration opportunities; and development and running the logistics of Little Dreamers programs.
Reporting through to the State Manager (NSW), this role requires creativity, initiative and an ‘out-of-the-box’ attitude to solving complex problems. You will have autonomy to affect change within the organisation, developing programs from the ground up with lots of room to grow within the organisation.
This is a part time position (3 days per week) and it's highly desirable (but not essential) for the successful applicant to speak Vietnamese as many of our families in this area are part of the Vietnamese community.
