The purpose of this role is to provide therapeutic support to women experiencing domestic abuse across our women’s services. This will involve providing innovative and creative 1-1 support to women who have experienced domestic abuse. This could be women living in refuge, women moving into their own tenancy and women seeking Outreach support. You will provide person centred support to women as they move through their journey and will advocate to make sure that women’s voices are heard and their needs are met.
It is essential that you have experience of providing support to women who have experienced gender-based violence. A suitable qualification that meets with SSSC Housing Support registration is also required (examples would be HNC Social Services or SVQ Level 3 Social Services and Healthcare).
