Job Description:
The Victorian Government has committed to implementing all 227 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence and to delivering on the vision described in Roadmap for Reform: Strong families, Safe children.
A key recommendation of the Royal Commission and the Roadmap for Reform was to establish a network of Support and Safety Hubs (Hubs) across Victoria to provide a new way to support women, children and young people experiencing family violence, and families in need of support with the care, development and wellbeing of children and young people, to access coordinated support from community, health and justice services. The Hubs will also focus on perpetrators of family violence, to keep them in view and play a role in holding them accountable for their actions and changing their behaviour.
Hubs will bring together different workforces and practices to create an integrated Hub team and a consolidated intake point in each Hub area to create a new way of support for:
•  Women, children, young people and families experiencing family violence;
• Perpetrators of family violence;
• Families in need of support with the care, development and well-being of children .
This will be achieved by drawing on the expertise of CSO's and their deep connections with people in local areas, and bringing together workers from organisations that currently:
• Receive police referrals for women and children who are victims of family violence;
• Receive police referrals for perpetrators of family violence (known as "Enhanced Intake Services');
• Receive child well-being referrals;
• Provide Child FIRST service;
• Deliver other relevant services as appropriate, such as those delivered by Aboriginal services.
The Hubs Team will include a mix of staff employed by FSV and staff employed by CSOs, Aboriginal services and DHHS. For each launch site the size of the team will vary to reflect the local resources.
The Aboriginal Hub Practitioner will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of practitioners to deliver high quality, safe and effective responses to Victorian women, children and families seeking support and safety through the Hub, and keep the perpetrator in view. The Aboriginal Hub Practitioner will report to the Hub Team Leader on a day to day basis with formal line management and supervision provided by MDAS Aboriginal Practice Leader.
The Aboriginal Hub Practitioner will be part of two staffing teams within the Support and Safety Hub Team and MDAS Family Violence team.
