Do you have experience working in group homes? Do you enjoy supporting people with a dual diagnosis? The Junction Works are now recruiting experienced and dedicated support workers to join our two supported accommodation programs in Fairfield.
The Junction Works Community Living service provides supported accommodation in a community setting to people with a disability. The service provides a range of supports that are flexible and responsive to the changing needs of our residents. Our aim is to enable our residents to live a quality life in their community: a life that is as independent as possible and that is meaningful to the person.
The role of Community Living Support Worker will be to provide support and guidance to residents to enable them to develop the full range of life skills and gain further independence. You will be working with residents who all have a dual diagnosis – a mild intellectual disability and mental health issues.

These roles will need a flexible approach to accommodate weekend and out of hours work, including overnight shifts.
