The Emergency Relief Centre is a Uniting program located in Wodonga. The service was established to provide food parcels to people from the Albury Wodonga region who are experiencing financial crisis and are having difficulty providing food for themselves. An ER Interviewer conducts a face to face interview with consumers who are presenting for assistance and help facilitate referrals to other programs and agencies.
People who have desire and passion to support those experiencing hardship in their community would be suited to this role. Emergency Relief interview volunteers are expected at all times to be non-judgmental in their approach and the ability to respond with empathy to consumers in crisis. Previous work in welfare, social work or related disciplines is desirable.
Uniting is a child safe organisation and is committed in everyday practice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children, at all times. As a ‘child safe’ organisation, employment with Uniting is subject to a satisfactory national (and international where relevant) police check and relevant Working with Children Check in your State prior to commencement of any paid or unpaid work and/or participation in any service or undertaking.
Uniting is also committed to equal opportunity and ensuring the workplace is reflective of the community. We encourage people from different backgrounds to apply, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with a disability.
