Support Officer – Part time Kununurra
(15 hours per week, $33 per hour)

Are you looking to work with an awesome team of empathetic people who are passionate about supporting others? Do you want a flexible role where you can bring your creativity and local knowledge?

The Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corporation is a community owned and controlled organisation that consists of members of the Stolen Generations and their families from the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The corporation offers activities, projects, and services that acknowledge the experiences of members of the Stolen Generations and help them come to terms with it. The corporation has a Link-Up Service that organises family reunification and other reunions and activities for people of the Stolen Generation across the Kimberley. KSGAC provides support services to victims of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse through the Redress Scheme.

KSGAC has been engaged by the Department of Social Services to provide free, trauma informed, culturally appropriate targeted counselling support for First Nations Peoples with a disability, their families and carers. The delivery of these services will be primarily in person.

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 … and this is where your local knowledge and connection to community can really make a difference.

We are looking for a reliable person with strong admin and computer skills who can use their initiative to support our team. Aboriginal people with relevant experience are encouraged to apply.

Essential for this role is knowledge/experience working with Indigenous organisations and an understanding of the impacts of removal policies and the ability to travel.

This position is currently funded to 30th June 2020.
