Service delivery includes within the community, at our Franklin Street facilities, but also to clients who are currently incarcerated.

Full training and support is available from the existing Team Manager, who will supervise this role. Please note, initially this role is funded for six months, but it is anticipated that ongoing funding will be available subject to evidencing client outcomes, service improvements and efficiencies.
