St Kilda Gatehouse is a not for profit organisation which began as an outreach service working with street-based sex workers in St Kilda. Since 1992 the organisation has built its relational model around community development and social justice.
St Kilda Gatehouse provides spaces of belonging and safety where individuals experience social inclusion and access to the support they need with respect and unconditional acceptance.
In 2015 St Kilda Gatehouse launched the Young Women's Project (YWP). The YWP is a voluntary service that provides wraparound, tailored support including 1:1 outreach, sexual health and education, structured group work, mental health support, advocacy, community linkage, education and employment support and practical assistance. The YWP is a source of dignity and hope for those affected by sexual exploitation
The Outreach Worker will provide outreach and support to vulnerable young women engaged with the Young Women's Project to address risk factors contributing to sexual exploitation and develop protective factors for young women and help connect them to community, family and services. You will ensure every young person is valued and is provided with information, targeted support, advocacy and referrals while working collaboratively with other agencies to provide a holistic response.
The Outreach Worker will meet reporting requirements through case file notes, intake and appropriate risk assessments to ensure the safety of the young person and workers and liaise with stakeholders.
This position is being offered as a fixed term contract of 3 days per week for 12 months (with the possibility of extension).
