Programme delivery likely to take place in Crawley with travel across East and West Sussex

The Violence Prevention Programme Facilitator will lead a structured programme with groups (alongside a co-worker) and deliver individual sessions to those unable to access a group programme. You will work predominantly with men in a way that shows an understanding of domestic violence and its effects on women, and that prioritises the safety of the perpetrator’s (ex) partner.

In addition, you will collect information needed for monitoring purposes and assist in producing statistical and other reports. You will also provide support and advice to sessional workers and/or volunteers.

The successful candidate will have experience of providing one-to-one interventions or group work with men on the issues of violence and abuse towards women. You will have strong communication skills, particularly over sensitive and complex issues, and the ability to work as part of a team and manage your own administration. Ideally you will also have experience of working on issues of violence and abuse with individuals identifying as LGBTQ, and/or with women who use violence towards men in relationships.

You will have an understanding of the range of models used in addressing this behaviour and preferably have experience of liaising with social workers or other professionals, and have an understanding of the criminal justice system and the legal options available to victims of domestic abuse.

This role requires extensive travel and the use of a car is also essential.
