Children’s Ground is working to create an environment where families realise their aspirations for the next generation of children to be free from trauma and suffering, enjoy equity and safety, be able to grow into adulthood happy and healthy, and have agency over their social, cultural, political and economic life.
The Social, Emotional & Wellbeing Practitioner will be a member of a multi-disciplinary team that delivers the Children’s Ground Family Health and Wellbeing Framework to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for the community. This will include the recognition and support of local cultural knowledge systems and practices, and the agency of consumers. In addition, we know that the history of colonisation in Australia continues to have an ongoing devastating impact on Indigenous families and communities. Genocide, dispossession, segregation, assimilation and loss of land rights are part of the context for all Indigenous Australians.
This position will be responsible for co-designing a strengths-based therapeutic framework and service with First Nations people that will work across the Children’s Ground Learning and Health and Wellbeing platforms. Working collaboratively with the Health Team, you will develop and implement family health plans with individuals and families and create and deliver responses to population health needs with the local community.
