An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the Almond Project, hosted alongside colleagues with the Domestic and Sexual Assault Team (DASAT).
You will have previous experience of working with women involved in the Criminal and Youth Justice service. The postholder will focus on improving positive outcomes for women and reduce their risk of re-offending.
Research findings inform that a high proportion of women in the criminal and youth justice system may have experienced abuse and or mental health and or substance misuse issues. Therefore, previous experience in working with these issues would be advantageous.
Your role will be to support women, comply with statutory orders e.g Probation Orders, Diversion from Prosecution, Community Payback Orders and voluntary Throughcare and Aftercare. Therefore, you will be required to have an understanding of the Criminal and Youth Justice system.
You will have previous experience of working with women who are or have experienced abuse. You will have an understanding of the complexities of all forms of abuse and its impact on women and children. You will have the ability to work as part of a team, liaise/work with a variety of partner organisations in order to promote the best interest of women and children.
This post will be hosted and line managed by DASAT
