About the opportunity

The role will deliver practical assistance to enable clients to access private rentals, develop support plans tailored to the needs of each household and offer advocacy support, including at VCAT where required. The PRAP Plus Worker will primarily support clients in the communities where they live, assisting them to establish links within their local community and identify referral pathways to relevant community support services.
