Generous salary sacrifice package and other additional benefits. Hours: 76 hours per fortnight (9AM to 5PM Monday to Friday). Accountability: Board of DVAC, CEO, Operations Manager, Integrated Response Manager and Staff Team/MCS IFSS Leadership team. Location: The position is an outreach position based at DVAC, with a significant portion of time to be co-located at Mercy Community Services IFSS in the Ipswich area. Vision Our vision is for a community where all people are participating with respect and dignity, to ensure that everyone lives safely and free from violence and abuse. Purpose DVAC works with individuals and communities to eliminate, prevent and respond to domestic and family violence, and sexual violence by: Collaboratively providing quality support services; Challenging social norms and structures that enable people to use violence/enable the use of violence; Building awareness and capacity within the community; and Encouraging egalitarian relationships.

2 Values Feminism informs our understanding of the nature of violence in our communities and guides the way we work to address it. In delivering our services, DVAC is committed to: Safety A subjective and complex human right, which is the basis for a rich and meaningful life; Integrity A commitment to act ethically and transparently, with congruence and goodwill ( walking the talk ) Community Belonging and connectedness Justice Equal access to the benefits of society and human rights Innovation Creatively exploring possibilities and responding to evolving needs The Organisation The Domestic Violence Action Centre (DVAC) is a not-for-profit organisation located in Ipswich servicing the local government areas of Ipswich City Council, Somerset Regional Council, Lockyer Valley Regional Council, Scenic Rim Regional Council (excluding Beaudesert) and Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. Since April 1994, DVAC has been committed to working with our communities towards the prevention and elimination of domestic and family violence. To this end, DVAC is actively involved in supporting women, young people and children who are experiencing or who have experienced domestic and family violence, supporting men who are actively committed to behaviour change as well as providing information and education to the community at large. DVAC provides a range of services that include: Telephone information, referral, advocacy and support services to women and children; Court support for women in our three regional courts; Counselling services for women and children; Group work for women, children and young people; Safety upgrades for women and children wanting to stay in their homes; Schools community education sessions; Providing professional training and resources to other service providers and stakeholders; and Community development, education and awareness raising events. DVAC is also funded to provide sexual violence support services to those who have experienced historical sexual violence in the Ipswich & Toowoomba regions. This distinct program of DVAC, the Service Against Sexual Violence, commenced in June 2016, and provides counselling and support services. DVAC has also been funded from August 2016, to deliver a group program, ReNew, for young men (and their mothers) who are using violence against their mother and/or siblings. This program is being delivered in partnership with Talera Services Carinity. In addition to this, DVAC works closely with our communities and key stakeholders to develop and maintain an integrated response to domestic and family violence issues. This role involves

3 encouraging other key stakeholders to engage in collaborative responses to domestic and family violence issues throughout our community to ensure safety for women and children and accountability for people using violence. More recently, Ipswich has been selected to host integrated service response sites, including High Risk Teams, funded by the Department of Communities. DVAC will be the lead non-government agency, and a key driver of integrated responses in the Ipswich region, with a view to innovation to best meet client need. DVAC will also be directing referrals to, and actively participating in the High Risk Teams. Our partnering agency, Mercy Community Services (MCS), exists to support and empower those who are poor, vulnerable, marginalised or in a position of disadvantage. MCS aims to be recognised as a leading provider and facilitator of quality, responsive community services. MCS values Mercy, Acceptance, Excellence, Dignity, Empowerment, Integrity - underpin all of their work in the community. The Connected Families Intensive Family Support program works with families experiencing a broad range of intersecting issues (including DFV) that compromise their ability to maintain safety and wellbeing for the children and young people in the family. The majority of these families have had, or are at risk of having, Child Safety Services intervention in their lives. The intention is to work with the breadth of need of these families to increase safety and connectedness to supports so they can remain safely together. The MCS Connected Families Program IFSS sits alongside a continuum of programs to support children, young people and families through a multitude of life transitions. Equal Employment Opportunities DVAC values diversity in our workforce, and as such encourages applications from women from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island backgrounds. DVAC also encourages women from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds to apply for vacant positions. DVAC recognises and celebrates the unique benefits that employing a diverse group of women with a broad range of life experiences brings to the organisation. DVAC has an exemption under Section 25 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (QLD) and it is a general occupational requirement that all applicants identify as female. Position Summary The Senior DFV Practitioner role is an outreach position employed by DVAC, with a significant portion of time to be co-located at MCS IFSS in the Ipswich area. The position will be responsible for managing a caseload of referred families whose primary issue is the experience of domestic and/or family violence; the work with these families will contribute toward the outcomes and funded target outputs of the MCS IFSS program. A proportion of this work will occur in family homes in the communities across the catchments of the Ipswich North, Ipswich South and Springfield Child Safety Service Centres. At the same time the role will be responsible for providing consultancy across the entire MCS IFSS team to ensure safe and consistent practice in relation to families experiencing violence, providing a specialist

4 domestic and family violence perspective, with a focus on encouraging and supporting the uptake of the Safe & Together model. These principles also provide a framework of practice for the role as applied to the MCS IFSS context. As a specialised position, it is envisaged that the Senior DFV Practitioner will provide a critical screening role to assist appropriate referral to the Ipswich DV High Risk Team. The role will be required to build and maintain a network of service connections to support timely, appropriate, supported referrals to specialised providers to meet the broad needs of family members in the interests of their safety and wellbeing. Attendance of (and representation of the MCS IFSS at) interagency network meetings, especially those with a DV focus (such as the High Risk Panels when invited), will be a requirement. To maintain a current and supported DV framework in the conduct of the role, the Senior DFV Practitioner will work from the DVAC offices at least one day per week. This will allow for appropriate professional supervision, participation in peer professional development and supervision opportunities and to maintain a connection with the larger DVAC work group.
