Here is what our team members say

motivates them to work for Act for Kids…

“What helps me keep me motivated is our SafeKIDS program, keeping our children close to family, culture and community. It excites me to see the smiles on the children’s faces when spending time with family out in community, whether it be out fishing or barbecuing on their homelands. It’s awesome! I love Act for Kids and what we do as a team!”

“As a therapist I love working in an integrated team, to assist children and their families with healing, growth and development. It’s great to work in an organisation that is passionate and motivated to make a difference.”

“I believe that providing children with opportunities to experience positive interactions with trusted adults can make a huge difference to their capacity to recover from trauma.”

“What motivates me to come to work is the unconditional support from my fellow colleagues and supervisor, I think Act for Kids in a whole promotes a great level of self-care which reflects our practice when working with our families.”

“Act for Kids is a wonderful organisation that is truly focused on great outcomes for children. It’s not hard to be committed to that.”

“We actually walk and talk our values, from the top down, therefore I feel valued, appreciated and like we are all working towards a common goal.”

“I wanted to make a career change. I felt I needed to work with families and children as previous jobs restricted me to assist families on the ground level.  Since working for Act for Kids I’ve been supported in furthering my career by going on to study a BA in Social Work.  Act for Kids have supported me in this decision and I am able to apply my studies to real-life cases. Being Aboriginal, I am hoping to finish my degree and help support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families by working towards lowering the number of Aboriginal children being placed in out-of-home care. I am sure I will get there and make a difference. I love the work I am doing.”

“I have found Act for Kids to be one of the most supportive and friendly organisations I have ever worked for. I feel valued by the organisation, which is something I have not really felt that often before.”
