Health Support Workers (NQ – 2 position):

 The SIS Health Support Program aims to address the health and wellbeing needs of criminalised women and their children – both pre-existing untreated conditions and conditions exacerbated by imprisonment.  This position will support women following their release from Townsville Women’s Correctional Centre. It is part of a 2 person NQ team who will work with women released to Townsville, elsewhere in NQ and beyond. This will include supporting women to have their physical and mental health needs met, and to address any wider issues (e.g. housing, family violence and child removal) which impact on their health.  For more details, see the Position Description.

Housing Support Worker (NQ - 1 position)

The Housing Support Worker primarily provides intensive support to improve the housing and wellbeing of women and their children following women’s release from women’s prisons in North Queensland (NQ).  The majority of program participants will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women on parole, who would otherwise be homeless or at risk of homelessness post-release. For more details, see the Position Description.
