Make a positive change to someone's life, by leading the Health Justice Program at our prominent indigenous reform organisation.

About the Program and Role

Given the impact of poor health and cycles of disadvantage in our communities, we have developed a Health Justice Program that focuses on breaking these cycles and reducing the inequities in health and social outcomes. To this end, we have designed and implemented several Health Justice Programs within the various CYP entities and will continue to evolve this further across other areas of the organisation. These Programs provide integrated multidisciplinary supports to ensure that the people accessing our services in education and employment are also availed with the opportunity to address their health, wellbeing, housing, financial, and legal needs.

The Health Justice Program Manager will be responsible for leading the design, implementation and broad management of Health Justice Programs across CYP, including D Health, our onsite health and wellbeing service at Djarragun College and the other similar projects currently underway.

The role requires the incumbent to have a comprehensive understanding of Health Justice Partnerships and the integral role these multidisciplinary collaborations have in reducing cycles of disadvantage. They will also be expected to develop a broad understanding of all the CYP entities to assess the need for this type of model. This may include travel to the various CYP sites throughout Cape York on a regular basis.

There will also be an expectation of the incumbent to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the various projects to ensure improvement in health and justice outcomes.

This is an opportunity for a vibrant personality to develop your support focus, strengthen your compassion and challenge your problem solving skills. You will forge strong relationships with your friendly team at the same time as assisting people in a vulnerable situation, to have a better life.
