Caseworker Kinship Out of Home Care

Wathaurong provides contracted case management for children in Out of Home Care (both Kinship and Home-Based Care arrangements). The purpose of this role is in providing case management to the children, young people and carers in accordance with the overall case planning direction for a child or young person. 

This role follows the best practice principles to provide and support better outcomes for clients through the coordination of cases across the Kinship and Foster Care programs within the Family Services department. Through this role you will provide case management to children on a variation of orders, including Family Reunification Orders, Care By Secretary Orders and Long Term Orders. 

For Aboriginal families, culture and the integrity of culture is crucial for the health and development of their children. Traditional Aboriginal culture is inherently inter-relational and inter-dependant and views the person as living and being in a relationship with the family, the community, the tribe, the land and spiritual beings, of the lores and dreaming. It’s important that interventions respect the strong lineal connection and that case workers see child and family needs holistic united care, not feeling in isolation. It is also important that you seek from the family their definition of who should be involved in particular assessments, interventions, and planning activities, rather than case workers making assumptions about, who is “family” or who forms “community” for this child and family.

All applications must be submitted via SEEK by: Friday 1 December 2023.
