Targeted Care Packages program (TCP) enables children and young people from the Out of Home Care system to return home or to transition into care arrangements where their needs will be better met. Alternative placements could include with parents, family or friends, a foster carer, independent or semi-independent living or other forms of care. The aim of Targeted Care Packages is first and foremost to achieve better outcomes for children and young people in Out of Home Care.
To that end, the best interests of children and young people will guide all decision making when considering care and support options to ensure a tailored response. It is expected that the TCP Key Worker will directly engage and work with the child, their family, carers and others to facilitate changes that support achievement of the child’s case plan and the outcomes sought for the child or young person. To fulfil their role, they will also need to possess sound case work and management skills and possess an ability to work outside traditional program boundaries, and be supported by their agency to do this.

Qualifications and Experience:
  • A person employed as a TCP Key Worker will be required to hold an accredited qualification relevant to the position at Degree Level or above, have a passion and commitment for supporting children and families across the child and family support/child protection continuum and ideally have transferrable practice experience in the sector or similar fields.
  • Diploma level qualification in relevant field may be considered, on the proviso that the applicant will commit to undertake further Tertiary studies with the support of the Organisation.
  • Experience in dealing with children who have experienced trauma and interrupted attachment would be an advantage.
  • A current drivers licence, a willingness to travel and preparedness to be accommodated overnight when required.
