Job vacancy: Safe and Together Implementation Lead

This is an exciting opportunity to be at heart of implementing the innovative Safe and Together Model.

The Safe and Together model (see ) has had international success in changing Children’s Services’ response to domestic abuse, increasing the number of children who remain safely with their non-abusive parent and decreasing the high re-referral rate. This project will roll out Safe and Together across two London Authorities, Hackney and Waltham Forest over an eighteen-month period.

The Principles of Safe and Together:

  1. Keep children Safe and Together with their non-abusive parent, ensuring safety, healing from trauma, stability and nurturance.
  2. Partnering with non-abusive parent as a default position ensuring efficiency, efficacy and child-centred practice.
  3. Intervening with the perpetrator to reduce the risk and harm to the child through engagement, accountability and criminal justice.

This post will work across both local authorities supporting the implementation of the Safe and Together model and its integration into practice.  Respect believe that Safe and Together has a huge potential to drive improvements to children’s services across the UK and this post is an opportunity to be involved at an early stage. We are looking for a motivated individual with commitment to improve both practice and culture to achieve better outcomes for children affected by domestic abuse.
