Weave - Outreach Caseworker
Weave Youth and Community Services
The Outreach Caseworker is responsible for providing outreach intensive casework, case management, practical assistance, housing support, information and referral, education and advice to students enrolled in three streams of the SLHD Aboriginal Traineeship Program - Assistance in Nursing, Health Administration and Health Support Services (cleaning). The Aboriginal Traineeship Program is an entry point for Aboriginal people into a health career and the caseworker will support students through casework for the first 6 months of their traineeship. Trainees may have complex trauma histories and may be facing complex social situations that could impact their educational and employment experience. Casework support may be required for challenges including homelessness, reduced access to food, transport, mental health issues, alcohol and other drug challenges, and domestic and family violence.
The caseworker’s role is to work individually with the trainees to ensure they are supported to manage these challenges, reduce their impact and increase trainee engagement with their studies and the workplace.
