Roshni offers safe, temporary refuge accommodation and a range of community based domestic abuse support services for BME communities.  Applicants must have a commitment to quality, equality and valuing diversity, work on rota basis and on-call.

 

This post is based in Birmingham providing outreach support to victims and survivors of domestic abuse including forced marriage and honour based abuse across the West Midlands.

 

You will provide emotional and practical support to victim and survivors who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse, forced marriage or honour based abuse. You will have experience undertaking risk assessments, produce safety plans, and liaising with statutory and other agencies; enabling clients to reach informed decisions about their future. This role includes delivering presentations to raise awareness of domestic abuse, forced marriage and honour based abuse. You must not tell victims and survivors what they ‘should do’ but inspire them to make empowered informed decisions themselves.

 

You must be well organised and have a professional and flexible approach to your work along with a calm and reassuring manner. It is essential that you have worked with survivors of domestic abuse in a specialist, social care or similar setting. Relevant qualifications such as IDVA or Freedom Programme Facilitator would be an advantage.

 

If you are passionate about working with BME communities, committed and motivated to eradicate domestic abuse, challenge systems and structures to ensure the rights and needs of service users are protected and promoted, are passionate about developing and delivering empowering client centred support then we would really like to hear from you.
