At ac.care, we want all country people to have a safe home, enough money to live on and strong, positive relationships.
We are a non-government organisation (NGO) and our values (CARE - Compassion, Adaptability, Relationships, and Excellence) underpin the work we do. Together, as one team, we CARE to ensure all country people experience the same seamless and consistent service across all touch points in a welcoming and non-judgemental environment.
8% of ac.care staff are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and that figure is growing – you could be a part of the growth.
What are the benefits of working for ac.care?
We have a dedicated, caring team of 260 employees and volunteers working in the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland and Limestone Coast regions of country South Australia.
We create opportunities for employment and training of Aboriginal people and through our Reconciliation Action Plan we seek to have Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people represent 10% of our staff across services.
ac.care is committed to child safety and protection. We have zero tolerance of child abuse. Our robust human resources, recruitment and vetting practices are strictly adhered to during the application and interview process. Before a successful applicant is able to begin employment with ac.care, they are required to produce a current Child Related Employment Screening through the Department of Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) Screening Unit or to undergo one at ac.care’s expense. ac.care also conducts reference checks to ensure we are recruiting people who share our values with regard to child safety and protection.
ac.care is a child-safe organisation that endorses the Charter of Rights for Children and Young People in Care.
ac.care is committed to delivering assistance in an accessible, confidential, impartial, non-judgemental and non-discriminatory environment. We believe in people’s dignity when they are going through a difficult time. The people who work and volunteer at ac.care are from many different faiths and cultures.
