SSI’s Women at Risk committee works to ensure that effective services are delivered to women who have been identified as living in Australia without the protection of a male relative and have been in danger of victimisation, harassment or serious abuse because of their gender in their country of origin.
Life skills and orientation assistants (community language) build on the case management support offered to clients by offering language support, guiding access to local services, supporting attendance at orientation sessions, building their social networks, and improving their understanding of Australian cultural practices.
N.B. Being female is a requirement for this role.
A regular commitment of at least one shift per week is requested with shifts available for volunteers on both weekdays and weekends. It is also a requirement of this role that volunteers have a proficiency in any of the following languages: Arabic, Assyrian, Farsi, Dari or Tamil.
