Website Southern Peninsula Community Support

Providing a safety net for our community.

Southern Peninsula Community Support (SPCS) provides a safety net for the community, supporting people who are in crisis or experiencing disadvantage, who often fall through the gaps.  We provide crisis support and emergency relief in the form of assistance such as food and material aid, advocacy, referral and information and options for next steps.  Importantly, we provide a space where people will feel valued and listened to, fostering trust and connection with our community.  We encourage independence and aim to empower people to make positive change in their lives.

Community Support Workers undertake much of the client facing work in our organisation, interviewing clients one on one and working on solutions together with the client.  As we are an emergency relief and crisis support agency many people are experiencing huge challenges when they come to us and Community Support Workers build connection and trust while delivering support.  Clients almost always leave feeling much more positive than when they arrive!  This role requires a short nationally accredited course and onsite mentoring, all training is provided, however if you have a background in community work you may be able to apply for an RPL.

If you are a compassionate person with excellent communication and teamwork skills, interested in supporting those who are vulnerable and marginalised in our community, we encourage you to apply.  For more information on how to apply please email or phone 5986 1285.
