UnitingCare ReGen, a leading drug and alcohol rehabilitation agency, are introducing the Little Book series, which contains facts and real-life scenarios highlighting the potential harms associated with drug and alcohol use.
People who need help with food do so because they face a range of complex hardships in their lives and the three most common issues facing people who seek emergency relief are housing stress, homelessness and mental health issues.
UnitingCare Tasmania has 10,000 emergency relief appointments every year. That’s 27 people who come to them for help every day.
In the past three years SHARE has distributed over $885,000 to emergency relief programs. Funds distributed doubled between 2011 and 2012 which highlights the growing numbers of people seeking help with the basic necessities of life.
Would you like to have a positive influence on the lives of vulnerable young people?
Does the thought of living rent-free appeal to you?
UnitingCare Harrison, a leading welfare provider in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, is looking for a mature minded person or couple to act as a Lead Tenant in one of our semi-independent youth homes.
In this role, you would share a house with three young people and role-model appropriate, positive behaviour through your own engagement in education, employment or study, self-care and communication.
Lead Tenants establish positive and meaningful relationships with at-risk young people and encourage the young person to develop their social and recreational skills.
The Lead Tenant program is designed to encourage young people to engage in their own progress towards being responsible members of the community and positive independence.
In return the Lead Tenant lives rent free (aside from a utilities contribution), is supported by UnitingCare Harrison’s Youth Team and has access to supervision on a regular basis.
If this sounds like an exciting opportunity, please ring Jenny Tomlin General Manager Youth and Family Services at UnitingCare Harrison on 9871 8700 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
