Interested in being a peer worker?
We are looking for parents or family members who have successfully navigated child protection and out-of-home care systems. It is not a requirement for your children to be restored but there should be no child protection concerns related to you as noted by DCJ in the past 12 months.
Your lived experience of child protection and out-of-home care systems is critical to advocacy and support with other parents as they work on navigating processes around their children in care.
You can apply any time
Successful applicants will be trained. All peer workers receive ongoing support, supervision and professional development.
or call Rachel, the Service Manager: 0434 035178
