Family Support Worker (Community Accommodation)

Family Support Workers (Community Accommodation) work with individuals and families, within the guidelines of the Somerville Community Accommodation Service, to assist them in the transition to more permanent accommodation; to facilitate their participation in society at the greatest level to which they aspire and are capable of achieving; to identify individual and family goals and seek to achieve enhancement of life skills and family and community relationships; and to gain access to community services and entitlements.

Thank You

Thank you for helping us to make a positive difference to hundreds of people over the festive period. Thanks to the many generous donations of food and gifts from individuals, schools, businesses, corporations and government, we were able give presents to 380 children and over 200 hampers to local families, elderly people and people staying in shelters over Christmas. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the many people and organisations who gave donations, and the volunteers who helped to sort the food and gifts for distribution.

Responsible Gambling Awareness Week brings together service providers and gaming venue staff

As part of Responsible Gambling Awareness Week, Amity Community Services hosted a Community Liaison Officer launch.

The event brought together gaming venue staff from around Darwin and representatives from the Australian Hotel Association (AHA) with staff from Community service providers such as Anglicare, Somerville and Amity Community Services.

The launch was an opportunity for Community Liaison staff to get to know more about the services provided in the community to help minimise harm associated with gambling.

Gambling? Go easy!

Responsible Gambling Awareness week runs from the 24th to 30th of October and this year’s theme is Gambling. Go Easy.

This important week is about encouraging responsible gambling on four levels: individual, government, industry and community.

For individuals, this means that gambling is controlled, within your budget and time limits and doesn’t negatively impact your life or the lives of those around you.
