In August 2018, as part of Victoria’s Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Plan, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced a range of new rough sleeper programs across metropolitan Melbourne as well as a number of regional centres across Victoria. As a result, the position of Intensive Case Manager has been created. The role is a part of the Towards Home Plus Team, a joint initiative led by Neami and partnered with Launch Housing, Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative, Uniting ReGen, Bolton Clarke and Melbourne City Mission.
About the role
The Towards Home Plus team offers a holistic, assertive outreach support service to people who are homeless and rough sleepers. They provide intensive, flexible and responsive client-focused support featuring a multidisciplinary team approach with the aim of assisting clients to successfully sustain housing, improve physical and mental health and develop connections within the local community.
As a case manager within the team, you will provide case management and post-settlement support along with referral and linkage to relevant support services to your clients.
This role is employed by Launch Housing but will be based at the NEAMI Geelong site and will report to the NEAMI Service Manager.
What you will need
You will be tertiary qualified in human services, social work or other relevant discipline and have a comprehensive understanding of the issues which those experiencing homelessness confront as well as the skills and aptitude in working for people who are marginalized and disenfranchised with complex needs.
