Work with us

All in a day’s work – life at 54 reasons

Not your
typical 9-5

54 reasons might look like your regular not-for-profit, but the culture is different. Seriously. It's a place where courage, curiosity and care come head to head. Where people express their passion for supporting kids through policy, practice and playtime (which, let's face it, is the best time.) It's the type of place where people help by listening and learning, not by telling. And when something happens that's beyond anyone's control - fires, floods, you name it - our team is there when no one else is.

When I get a referral, I sit down and get a baseline for where [families] are at. Often people are just overwhelmed and don't know where to start. I do activities with them to determine how they want to feel and then we try to work out from there the kind of steps they want to take, which might involve meetings with the school or looking after their mental health. I worked with one mother recently who was very proactive and just needed to know she was on the right track... somebody to say, 'you're doing a great job'... just  cheering her on.

What I like about my job is when everyone pulls together - we can make such a huge impact to so many children, young people and families"

Lyn G

Senior Administration Officer, Vic, NSW, SA

One of my favourite parts [of the job] is watching the children grow and their confidence grow from first coming to our playgroup, being really shy, apprehensive children to then coming in...and really taking that ownership of our group.
