Koori Family Support Officer, Broadmeadows Children's Court of Victoria

An exciting opportunity to make a positive difference to the way that Koori children and families experience the Children's Court of Victoria.

About us:

The Children's Court of Victoria has jurisdiction under the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 to hear cases involving children and young people up to the age of 18 years, and in some cases up to 19 years. It has a Family Division and a Criminal Division and it sits at locations throughout metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

In July 2016 the Broadmeadows Children's Court commenced a ground-breaking pilot program called Marram-Ngala Ganbu (We are Onein Woiwurrung language). The Marram-Ngala Ganbu Koori Family Hearing Day aims to improve outcomes for Koori children involved in child protection proceedings, by providing a culturally appropriate process to assist in decision making. Marram-Ngala Ganbu also aims to improve adherence to the Aboriginal Child Placement Principle set out in the Children's Youth and Families Act 2005.

About the role:

Reporting to the Broadmeadows Koori Services Coordinator, the Koori Family Support Officer will play a critical role in the Marram-Ngala Ganbu team, supporting Aboriginal families with matters in the family division attending the Broadmeadows Children's Court.
