Intensive Family Support Kummara


Kummara Ltd. is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Organisation established in 1999 to provide support to vulnerable families at risk. The organisation’s objective is to support the long-term wellbeing and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Kummara offers many programs and works in partnership with families for the achievement of independence and strengthening of the family’s capabilities. We believe in the strengths of family and community and have developed a strong reputation for engaging and supporting our community. 

Infinity Community Solutions Ltd is a boutique secular social purpose organisation, motivated to make a difference in the lives of individuals. We strive to provide professional, evidence-based services, specifically designed to enable individuals to reach their full potential, and live rich and fulfilled lives.

Kummara and Infinity Community Solutions known as KICS have been working in partnership for 6 years providing support to children, young people and families through Secondary Family Support and Kinship and Foster Care services and now through Intensive Family Support. 

KICS will be operating two (2) Intensive Family Support services – one in Brisbane South/Southwest and one in Caboolture. 

About the Service:

The Intensive Family Support (IFS) program supports families experiencing multiple and/or complex needs with children unborn to 18 years of age who may be at risk of entering the statutory child protection system without support. The aim of IFS services is to provide intensive and extended, but time limited, in-home support to improve family functioning and safety for children by building the skills and capacity of parents/caregivers to a level that can be sustained by less intensive and more universally available services.

We are recruiting for multiple roles to fill both services including Managers (x2), Senior Practitioners and Family Support Practitioners.
