Family Home Caregivers needed in New Plymouth
Do you want to make a house a home in New Plymouth?
Family home caregivers are a live-in couple who care for 4-6 young people in a house provided by Oranga Tamariki. One of you will be the stay-at home caregiver and you will both be supported by an experienced team of social workers.
The children and young people who will help make this house a home need dedicated and empathetic caregivers who can help them build routines, keep them safe and connected to family and culture. Many of them have experienced trauma so the caregiving journey can be up and down but seeing them reach milestones makes it all worthwhile.
You will be provided with:
- Rent free home in New Plymouth
- Paid utilities and phone/internet
- Generous allowances in lieu of a salary
- Training and clinical supervision provided by a psychologist and social workers
- Respite care
We are looking for those who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people in their community. You will both be empathetic, good listeners and have strong experience working with young people.
Get in touch today to see if this journey is right for you. Your aroha could make all the difference.
