Solace Women’s Aid exists to bring to an end the harm done through domestic and sexual violence to all survivors and in particular women and children. Our work is holistic and empowering, working alongside survivors to achieve independent lives free from abuse.
Following a successful transformation fund bid to extend our work with perpetrators, an exciting opportunity has arisen to work as a Prevent & Change (PAC) Case Manager across the three London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham.
The PAC project aims to increase the safety of domestic violence survivors and their children by working directly and indirectly with prolific domestic violence perpetrators. Operating within a multi-agency framework, alongside the Development and Implementation Manager, you’ll be familiar with managing your own case load to support disrupt and desist activity for perpetrators & undertaking 1-2-1/group work where appropriate.
By ensuring perpetrators are supported to change and/or held to account for their harmful behaviour, you’ll also provide experience in risk & case management and be a central element of monthly PAC Panels.
The successful candidate will also need to undertake assessments with perpetrators to identify the perpetrator’s level of risk/needs, and willingness to engage in support. Understanding of how to balance caseload priorities and interventions with supportive behaviour change work will be essential.
A core component of this will be maintaining close working relationships with key partner agencies and professionals including survivor support services, the police, housing, social services and drug/alcohol agencies so that robust risk & case management plans are followed.
We're looking for highly organised, self-motivated applicants with a passion for ending violence against women and girls and confidence in their ability to successfully deliver projects with hard to reach individuals. They will also have a demonstrable commitment to Solace’s feminist approach. Training and support for this role will be provided as necessary.
As this role is not protected under current equalities act legislation both women and men are free to apply.
