Worcestershire Domestic Abuse Service

Support and Development Worker - Minority Ethnic Communities (Housing and Resettlement)

This post is funded for 13 months by the Department of Communities and Local Government

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
