About Us:

At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower.

Communities for Children (C4C) is a Federal Government initiative funded through the Department of Social Services (DSS). Communities for Children initiatives seek to reach vulnerable families within the Greater City of Bendigo.

C4C is committed to identifying and supporting child centered, adult focused services and activities that build capacity and resilience within families and communities.

The Facilitating Partner subcontracts to a range of Community Partners to implement projects directed at achieving four key outcomes:

  • Addressing family violence through the early years sector
  • Addressing children’s literacy and language development  
  • Building parenting confidence and skills  
  • Supporting educational and vocational pathways for parents 

To Be Successful in this Position You Will Need:

  • Relevant tertiary qualification in social work, community development, early childhood or related discipline.
  • Demonstrated experience and knowledge in community development principles and practices and their application when working within communities to build capacity, and understanding of placed based and outcome focused approaches.

  • Demonstrated experience/skills in project management and ability to manage projects effectively with sound written, verbal and analytical skills.
