At Glasgow Women’s Aid we provide temporary refuge accommodation, crisis support and outreach support for women, children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse.
We are seeking a proactive and enthusiastic woman to provide therapeutic and emotional support to children and young people who are leaving refuge to move into their own home with mum. You will work with the children as they prepare to leave refuge and will continue to provide support as they transition to their new home. You will thrive on managing a busy case load, conflicting demands and dealing with complex and challenging situations.
You will provide children with 1-1 support, run group work programmes and free play sessions. You will work alongside mums, partnership agencies and the Women’s Follow On Workers.
It is essential that you have experience of providing therapeutic support to children who have experienced the effects of gender based violence in both a 1-1 and group setting. You should also have experience of carrying out individual risk assessments and therapeutic based health and wellbeing plans. It is also essential that you have a qualification that allows you to register as a Practitioner in a Day Care of Children Service with the SSSC and are committed to the feminist perspective of domestic abuse. You must have a driving licence and have access to a car.
At Glasgow Women’s Aid you will have access to a range of training opportunities and will be working with a group of highly experienced and supportive women. You will also have access to a final salary pension scheme, child care vouchers and a cycle to work scheme.
