First Nations Community Engagement / Social Worker - Work from Home
Support Act is looking for a First Nations Community Engagement / Social Worker to help increase the number of First Nations artists accessing our crisis relief and mental health & wellbeing services.
Support Act was established in 1997 by the Australian music industry to deliver crisis relief services to artists, roadies and music workers facing hardships due to illness, mental health problems, injury or some other crisis. This support can be range from assisting with daily living costs (e.g. rent and bill paying) to bringing comfort and dignity to people in the final stages of life. The Support Act Wellbeing Helpline service offers 24/7 professionally staffed telephone counselling to people in music (and the arts) with concerns about their mental health and wellbeing.
