Professional Individualised Care
We are seeking individuals, couples, or families who are interested to provide respite opportunities for our fulltime PTCs. The aim is not emergency care in a moment of crisis (we seek to allow the PTC and young person to stick with each other through moments of crisis), rather thoughtfully considered periods of care for a young person planned in advance with the PTC. You will be attuned to the primary work and directions of the PTC, working in complement with them and to supplement their longer-term efforts, an important part of the young person’s community of care, and seeking opportunities to offer rich and meaningful life experiences.
What is offered:
- A pro-rata, per day rate of pay in line with PTC wages, along with Carer Allowance for days spent with the young person
- Professional development opportunities and peer connection as an employee within the larger group
- Individualised practice, working flexibly, creatively, and opportunities for real relationship
