Social Futures is a voice for social change in regional Australia, helping to create connected, resilient communities. With more than 40 years’ industry experience, we are a community service leader, striving to create change through our work across homelessness and housing supports, youth and family services, sector advocacy and programs that promote genuine participation for people with disability. Social Futures currently serves more than 80% of regional New South Wales.
We welcome applicants from all walks of life to our diverse and inclusive workplace.
Social Futures is proud to be a White Ribbon accredited workplace and is committed to ensuring we have a safe and respectful workplace for all. We acknowledge that all people can be victims of violence and that all violence is unacceptable. The White Ribbon Committee is focused on addressing men’s violence towards women because of the underlying power inequality and sexism that sustains gender-based violence and the disproportionately high prevalence of this type of violence in the community.
Purpose of the Position
Social Futures is a NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) Partner delivering the NDIS Local Area Coordination (LAC) Transition Services in your community. These services will:
- provide support for people with disability and their families to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (the Scheme);
- assist people with disability, their families and carers to build and pursue their goals for a good life, exercise choice and control and engage with the Scheme; and
- ensure that people with disability can be supported outside the Scheme by working with communities and mainstream services to build awareness and to become more inclusive of the range of needs and aspirations of people with disability.
Local Area Coordinators (LACS) will be committed to improving the lives of people with disability and will work directly with participants to facilitate choice and control over the services they receive. LAC seeks to facilitate positive individual and social change by assisting people with disability to have valued and quality lives, enable families to remain an important and enduring support and for communities to become more welcoming and inclusive
