The Doorways program provides a holistic response to vulnerable members of the community to assist them to make positive life changes and increase capacity building and resilience skills. The broader approach of the Doorways program is to combine the provision of immediate crisis support with the option for clients to enter a deeper engagement with staff to support them address the underlying drivers of the crisis episodes they are experiencing.

  • Be able to demonstrate their understanding of the issues and challenges facing our vulnerable and marginalised clients, including the stressors on low income families.

  • Know how to identify risk factors (for staff and clients) and take appropriate action including referrals.
  • Be passionate about working in their community, and able to work on Kangaroo Island and stay on the island for a period each week.

To apply for this casual position please attach a copy of your resume (including 3 referees) and a cover letter detailing your suitability for the role.
