About Us


In 1838, five Sisters of Charity from Ireland arrived in Australia. They were the first religious women to come to the Colony. Their mission is to bring to all people “the love, tenderness and concern of Christ for the poor and marginalised”.


The Sisters of Charity of Australia led by the Congregational Leader and her Council have many mission involvements. The Congregational Office is based in Bondi Junction in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.


The Congregation is seeking two experienced Health and Wellbeing Support Workers to work part-time to support their Sisters who live independently in the community or in residential care in various locations in Sydney and some outside of Sydney.


The Opportunities


Reporting to the General Manager, you will work collaboratively with the Health and Wellbeing Coordinators and other colleagues to provide practical support to each Sister,allowing for her continued participation in the life and mission of the Congregation.


You will visit and maintain regular contact with the Sisters to develop rapport and an awareness of each Sister’s individual wellbeing. You will accompany and transport the Sisters to medical appointments and social outings as required, to ensure their physical and overall wellbeing.


Using your strong organisational and administrative skills, you will assist the Sisters with completing necessary paperwork, for example, in regards to hospital admissions or payment of medical accounts, and ensure that Sisters in hospital or residential care have any practical support they need, including appropriate clothing, shopping for personal items and assistance with meals.
