Our belief in the transformative power of relationships lies at the heart of everything we do.
Relationships Australia South Australia (RASA) is a not-for-profit, secular, community organisation, helping people to overcome difficulties and bring about positive change in their lives. We offer services for families, couples and individuals of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
Gambling can become a problem when it consumes more money and time than a person can afford, and begins to affect other aspects of their lives, such as their psychological and emotional well being, relationships with family and friends, finances, work and other leisure activities.
The Practice Manager is responsible for providing practice leadership and support to staff providing counselling and case management to clients in RASA’s Gambling Help Services. The Gambling Help Service (GHS) incorporates gambling help counselling and financial counselling to individuals, couples and families who are adversely affected by their own or someone else's gambling, and our two 'Lived Experience in Gambling' programs - the Consumer Voice Program and the Peer Support Service.
Working in conjunction with the Executive General Manager, the Practice Manager will support the development and maintenance of high quality service delivery across regions, as well as effective engagement with the community and industry to raise awareness of gambling-related harm. The Practice Manager will also lead staff to ensure high quality data input into RASA's client information system, Penelope. The Practice Manager will collaborate closely with Multicultural GH services and other programs within RASA to promote cross referral and case management.
