About the organisation

Organisation Name : North East Support and Action for Youth (NESAY)

NESAY is an incorporated association primarily funded through agreements with Victorian and Commonwealth Departments and their agents. We are governed by a community elected Board of Governance.

We provide a range of services for young people and their families across the Ovens Murray region that are aimed at supporting young people experiencing homelessness, family breakdown/violence, mental health and wellbeing, and those needing support to engage at school, develop independent living skills.

NESAY’s primary home is in Wangaratta, and we have a Community Services Hub in Benalla. We believe in place based services, so we provide regular service delivery to other communities in our region.

We have a service model that enables flexible workplace arrangements to meet the needs of the people accessing services, the community, and our team.

All NESAY team members are required to be committed to continuous improvement activities, comply with legislative requirements, and adhere to our code of conduct and Child Safe Standards.

About the role

NESAY has received funding to extend our Better Futures Program which has meant we have a new position in our team. We have advertised but didn’t find the right person to offer the position to- so we are now re-advertising the position of Better Futures Case Practitioner.

Better Futures enables young people to have an active voice in their transition planning and provides individualised supports both in-care and post-care across a range of life areas including housing, health and wellbeing, education, employment, and community and cultural connections.

Your role will include:

  • To provide support and assistance to the young person as per program funding guidelines
  • To provide practical support to the young person to encourage them to use their own strengths, and address difficulties that are impinging on their wellbeing or functioning.
  • In conjunction with the Team Leader/Manager, to implement and regularly review individual case plans.
  • To participate in case review and support with the Team Leader/Manager, other NESAY workers and other agencies currently working with the young person.
  • To provide an outreach service within our service delivery area
  • To participate and undertake research projects as required
  • Undertake any compulsory training outlined
  • To provide a prompt follow up from intake assessment and coordinated response to referral received.
  • Ensure that young person’s confidentiality and privacy are maintained at all times.
  • To develop and build positive relationships/networks with stakeholders and service providers.

This position can be based in Wangaratta or Benalla, with capacity to work from home. The position requires travelling within the Ovens Murray region to meet with young people in the program (fleet car provided).
