About the Role

yourSanctuary is a Surrey based charity which provides specialist assistance to women, men and children affected by domestic abuse. Using your communication skills and proactive attitude you will empower female survivors of domestic abuse to live a life without fear. Working in our community based service you will provide practical and emotional support and enable clients to reach informed decisions about their future. You will undertake risk assessments, produce safety plans, and liaise with statutory and other agencies. In addition, you will facilitate group work programmes and take calls on our 24/7 specialist helpline as well as deliver presentations to help raise awareness.

This role specifically includes being based for four hours per week within Surrey Children’s Services Social Care Team at Quadrant Court, Woking, to provide consultancy, advice and support around individual families being assessed or held by the team. Additionally you will provide specific support to the area based Early Help Coordinators on a case by case basis.
