Worcestershire Domestic Abuse Service

Support and Development Worker - Minority Ethnic Communities (Access to Services)

Temporary Contract until 30th June 2019

  • This post is for 30 hours per week and will be based in Worcester, for work covering the county.
  • Salary £19.966 pa FTE (pro rata payment of £16.189)

This post is funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communitites and Local Government's (formerly the Department for Communitites and Local Government) and forms part of the Worcester Domestic Abuse Service

The aims of this project are to ensure that services are better able to meet the needs of people from minority communities who are experiencing domestic abuse, in particular where needs are poorly understood and/or insufficiently recognised by existing services, or where existing services do not have the capacity to meet those needs. 

In addition to the provision of direct support, this project will scope the wider needs of partner agencies working with people from BME communities experiencing domestic violence and abuse to identify what is working well already, possible gaps in provision, and opportunities to improve awareness and service delivery to improve outcomes.

Initially this would be focussed on particular localities in Worcestershire, including Kidderminster, Evesham, Worcester and Redditich

The Successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the impact of domestic abuse for those living in minority communities, and a proven track record in successful partnership working to improve outcomes for vulnerable people.  WMWA welcomes applications from those with BME heritage.
