The Extended Care Program provides a culturally safe service to support Aboriginal children and young people who are in foster care placements. The Program provides support to the families of the children and to carers.
VACCA works towards reuniting children, wherever possible, with parents and extended family members. Some of these children are case contracted to VACCA to manage.
Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA) operates within the context that Aboriginal children continue to be significantly over-represented in the protection and care system within Victoria. VACCA considers that it has the responsibility and the opportunity to promote, advocate for and achieve positive changes in the lives of Aboriginal children, their families and the broader Aboriginal community.
If you like to be part of an Organisation that strives in strengthening the safety and wellbeing and cultural connectedness of Aboriginal children, individuals and families in their community, we want to hear from you.
To be considered for this role you must demonstrate:
- A sound knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal culture and issues facing Aboriginal children and their families today.
- Ability to advocate for Aboriginal children and communicate in a clear, culturally appropriate and respectful way with a range of stakeholders including staff and external parties.
