Our recovery workforce

Supporting us the whole way through this pandemic has been our mental health professionals, family violence specialists and child support workers.

This Budget, we’re investing in our Recovery Workforce, increasing support for these hardworking Victorians, creating better pathways to roles in these vital sectors and recruiting more positions.

With a total package of $235 million, an additional 500 new jobs will be created across mental health, family violence and child protection.

Recognising the incredible skill and knowledge of our carers, this package also includes $4.6 million to support them into employment in the community services, disability and aged care sector.

This includes assistance to help carers with their caring responsibilities while they study, helping with the cost of study materials, mentoring and additional supervision and support.
