About the Service

Solace Women’s Aid provides a wide range of services to victim/survivors of domestic and sexual abuse in Islington including a large advocacy and support service and specialist services co-located in a number of services.

As part of this partnership Solace are recruiting for an IDVA based in the Housing Department covering crisis intervention, risk assessment, safety planning, assessment of needs and individual support planning. A key aspect of the role will be to advocate on behalf of service users to improve access to housing in Islington. This role will be based three or four days in Islington Housing and two days is the SASS team.
