Job Description
Our programs are constantly evolving with new and creative ways to improve the lives of children, their families and their communities. In this key support role, you’ll contribute to making positive changes for children and families in the East Kimberley region. You will support our program delivery, with the unique opportunity to engage with the community to develop confidence in the services and support network we are proud to deliver.

We champion the children, young people and families we work with. We are inspired by the curiosity and creativity of children and motivated by the love of those who care for them.

With the child’s voice at the centre, we provide quality services to children and their caregivers, advocating with them so that children develop, learn, and are connected, safe and confident. Our people are proudly local, reflective of the communities we serve – in every state and territory, and across regions, remote areas and capital cities.
