An Exciting opportunity to work for a new service for young people who have been affected by domestic abuse in gloucestershire!

West Mercia Women's Aid have been contracted to set up a new county-wide service providing a range of targeted interventions to young people aged from 13-19 who have been affected by, or are at risk of, domestic abuse.  This specialist and person-centred service will be delivered in partnership with local domestic abuse specialist services, schools and services fro children and young people across Gloucestershire, and will include both the provision of 1:1 support for individual young people, and the delivery of group programmes, across the county.  The team will be based in Gloucester.

We are looking for experienced people with a flair for engaging young people in empowering and inspiring topic-based activities and support programmes - helping them to make a real difference in their lives.

The posts that we are looking to fill are:

Gloucestershire Young People's Domestic Violence Adviser (YPDVA) - This post is for 30 hours per week and will provide 1:1 support for the most vulnerable young people affected by domestic abuse, and/or by control and abuse in their teen relationships. Salary £23,644 p.a.(pro rata £19,170 p.a.)

Gloucestershire Young People's Worker (Term time only) - This post will work with young people through group programmes and 1:1 support, where appropriate.  For 24 hours per week, term time only (39 weeks per year) and will work across the county.  Salary £23,644 p.a.(pro rata £12,961 p.a.)

Both posts will also work with young people who demonstrate abusive behaviour in their domestic or teen relationships.

These roles require good knowledge and understanding of domestic abuse issues and the needs of those affected by it; plus a commitment to the values of empowerment and equality.

Experience of working with vulnerable young people is essential, including work with disadvantaged young people, together with sound knowledge and understanding of effective safeguarding.   You will have strong interpersonal skills and good written and verbal communication, and the ability to maintain professional boundaries.
