Tangentyere Council

about the role

Tangentyere Aged & Community Services (TACS) is part of the Community Safety & Social Services Division, which aims to improve the quality of life of Central Australian Aboriginal people and the wider community through providing innovative, responsive, and culturally safe services.

TACS provide CHSP, HCP & NDIS home care & centre-based services to an extremely diverse and vulnerable cohort of people, where health is more than often secondary to other social determinants. With more than 7 languages spoken and over 100 clients, TACS continues to uphold quality service provision and maintains its strong ties with members of the Alice Springs and wider community.

This position will also develop awareness campaigns and social support activities that will be co-designed with TACS clients and the leadership group at Tangentyere Council aiming to spread culturally safe messages to community members about elder abuse, neglect, and family violence.

This position will also support those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to access appropriate and sustainable housing as well as community care, residential aged care, and other support services, specifically targeted at avoiding homelessness or reducing the impact of homelessness while providing early intervention strategies for clients to ensure their emotional, psychological, and physical health and wellbeing is maintained.

Responsibilities

  • Provide high quality outreach, risk assessment, and advocacy for referred clients and their families
  • Collaborate with clients, their carer/family, TACS staff and relevant stakeholders that contribute to the assessment and development of holistic and appropriate care plans.
  • Develop awareness campaigns that highlight elder abuse, neglect, and family violence.
  • Provide culturally safe social support.
  • Prepare, collect, and disseminate data and reports.
  • Assist with achieving quality management objectives across the organisation.
