Lodging Interest to Manage Douglas Safe Places
Douglas Shire Council has an opportunity available for a community and/or domestic and family violence service provider to manage Douglas Safe Places on an ongoing basis.
The service provider will be responsible for the appointment of a Case Manager(s) and overseeing the program delivery.
About the Program
Douglas Safe Places consists of two co-located, self-contained units. The first unit is capable of accommodating two children and the second unit can accommodate up to four children.
The program aims to assist women and their children to maintain connection to their community, transition to safe and secure housing, and to re-establish a life free from harm through the provision of supported crisis accommodation.
