The Murwillumbah Community Centre is seeking an Indigenous Recovery Support Worker.
The Indigenous Recovery Support Worker position is part of the MCC Community Recovery and Resilience Project funded through PHN North Coast, supporting members of our local community affected by the recent floods with a focus on engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and older people across the different services and activities on offer.
The role of the Indigenous Recovery Support Worker will be aimed at providing individual support to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents and their families that have been affected by the floods, improving the wellbeing and emotional resilience of clients by connecting them to existing health and community services providers, community groups and project activities, and offering access to practical support and material wellbeing.
The role of the Recovery Support Team is key in the process of strengthening community capacity to enhance the recovery and healing process by linking individuals, developing networks of support and referral pathways with other services in the region.
The role of Recovery Support Worker will also include the coordination of the ‘Bunyarabugalma – Healing After the Floods’ community training and ongoing Bunyarabugalma workshops.
Bunyarabuglama has been developed by the Murwillumbah Community Centre Indigenous Programs Team as a trauma recovery, mindfulness and therapeutic tool to be used by community in a range of settings.
Within the scope of this project – it will be used specifically to promote healing, connection and wellbeing for flood impacted communities.
