The Community Restorative Centre (CRC) is a community based agency that has been delivering services to people affected by the criminal justice system for 66 years. We work hard to create an environment that encourages professional development and respect for staff to provide effective services for our clients.

The Transitional AOD Worker will provide outreach drug and alcohol counselling and support to people leaving NSW Correctional Centres – in particular, those with an intellectual disability or cognitive impairment; with a mental illness; who are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people; and/or women who have dependent children. All positions will focus on the provision of AOD counselling, health promotion, support and referral to individuals for whom access to mainstream services remains difficult and /or inaccessible. Casework services are delivered on an outreach basis.  Position is generally Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm; with occasional out-of-hours’ work to be performed as required.

As some of these positions are Aboriginal Identified, CRC considers being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander is a genuine occupational qualification as specified under section 14 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW).
