An exciting and unique opportunity to take a lead role in implementing a community focused, early response to the perpetration of domestic abuse. Experience of supporting development and leading on set up of new services is essential and it would be advantageous if this was in the area of domestic abuse. We will also consider applicants with transferable skills and a good understanding of the causes and consequences of domestic abuse, in particular in reference to the perpetration of abuse.
Applicants will be strong communicators, have a background in service delivery, working in partnership and alongside communities, experience of project implementation and a good knowledge of safe and effective practice when working with perpetrators of abuse as well as knowledge of local relevant procedures.
This ambitious project is a partnership between Respect and Women’s Aid to develop an early intervention response to perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse alongside the Change that Lasts response to survivors. It is funded by the Police Transformation Fund and supported by the Office of Police Commissioner in Lincolnshire and Sussex where the pilot sites will be located. The project aims to break new ground in terms of service delivery and partnership working, enabling behaviour change, increasing accountability and ensuring good quality outcomes for survivors and their children.
This project is to set up a perpetrator response. More information about already established Change that Lasts approach for survivors can be found here:
