Family Participation Program Specialist

Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Community Heal... - Chermside, QLD

Voluntary, Charity & Social Work
Source: uWorkin


Please note that it is a genuine requirement that this position be filled by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person in accordance with s25 of the Anti-discrimination Act 1991 (Qld).

About the role:
The Family Participation Program (FPP) Specialist will work with families involved in the statutory child protection system to reduce further statutory interventions and child removal by mitigating safety concerns raised by the Department of Child Safety using a Family Led Decision Making framework. The role is independent from Child Safety and works in partnership with families to reduce child safety concerns and help children remain safe in the family home. The role works heavily, but not solely, in the Investigation and Assessment (I&A) phase of the child safety continuum in reducing the disproportionate rates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children involved with the statutory Child Protection system.

The FPP Specialist will work with families (immediate and extended) to build their agency and empower their voices to be heard as part of understanding and addressing Child Safety worries and concerns. This is achieved by working closely with families to facilitate ownership of their present reality and an understanding of the potential impacts on their children, harness positive self-belief to change, facilitate a family-led plan (to overcome safety concerns) and empower the family’s voice to Child Safety in leading their change. The role does not make decisions for families. Instead the FPP Specialist work to empower families to exercise their right to self-determination and make their own informed decisions by building a family’s acceptance of reality and readiness to enact change.
