We deliver a number of programs targeted towards First Generation Stolen members and their descendants in the picturesque Kimberley Region.

KSGAC Board and staff adhere to the values of the Credo and Nolan Principals which is the basis of our organisation.

About the Role

The Disability Royal Commission was established in April 2019 in response to community concern about widespread reports of violence against, and the neglect, abuse and exploitation of, people with disability.

Hearing from people with disability, families, support people, organisations and the broader community helps the Royal Commission understand the extent and the impact of violence, neglect, abuse and exploitation against people with disability.

The Royal Commission acknowledges that coming forward and sharing their experience is a big step and has put services in place to support people with disability, their families and carers.

KSGAC has been engaged by the Department of Social Services to provide free, trauma informed, culturally appropriate targeted Counselling support to First Nations Peoples with a disability, their families and carers.

The delivery of these services will be primarily in person with differing delivery methods.

We are looking for a suitable team member for our Kununurra office with a tertiary qualification in Psychology, Social Work, Counselling or another relevant discipline or demonstrated relevant experience in a similar role. Salary dependent on qualifications and experience.
