The Summer Foundation’s aim is to resolve the issue of younger people living in Nursing Homes. Our Mission is to create, lead and demonstrate long-term sustainable change that stops young people from being forced to live in nursing homes because there is nowhere else for them.
The Housing Matching Team - a group of dynamic and passionate people - was created to drive two distinct streams of work which aim to assist people with disability to see the possibilities for a home for themselves and have options to choose from and find the home that is right for them.
The Housing Options Program Manager will lead a brand new team to drive the development of and undertake a community engagement campaign to identify people across Australia who are eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation Funding under the NDIS and support them to articulate their housing needs and preferences. The team will identify at least 1,000 people and their preferences within the next 12 months and will be required to develop resources, stories and deliver workshops to engage with people with disabilities and their supporters.
This role is creative, strategic and operational all at the same time and will have the support of the rest of the Housing Matching Team and Summer Foundation to make it a success.
This is an amazing opportunity for a strong and focused leader to build a team and execute a huge and sustained Australia wide campaign - and to make a difference in people’s lives!
The Summer Foundation offers amazing flexibility and full time or part time hours (0.8 - 0.9 FTE) can be negotiated. We also offer Salary Packaging, a supportive and collaborative team environment and the opportunity to feel good about what you achieve at the end of the day.
People with disability are encouraged to apply. Lived experience is valued by the organisation and looked upon favourably.
