Solace Women’s Aid is an innovative, exciting, grassroots charity working across London. Our purpose is to bring to an end the harm done through domestic and sexual violence to all survivors, and in particular women and children. Our work is holistic and empowering, working alongside survivors to achieve independent lives free from abuse.

You will be joining a team of committed and inspiring individuals whose dedication has saved the lives of thousands of women, men and children in the capital. We are looking for friendly and diligent individuals to join our services and help us make a difference.

About the Service

Solace offers extensive violence against women and girls (VAWG) services in Southwark; these include a range of advocacy and support options for survivors, therapeutic support for children, a behaviour change programme for perpetrators and training for professionals and community members. 
Support for survivors in Southwark is predominantly provided through Solace’s advocacy and support service (SASS) which supports survivors of domestic and sexual abuse of all genders and at all levels of risk. Provision includes one to one advocacy support, an IRIS service, a group programme, a Sanctuary scheme and peer support. In addition, Solace runs a number of specialist services for survivors in the borough; these include outreach services run in partnership with Children’s Social Care and Southwark Housing Solutions for women with multiple needs, and a supported accommodation service in dispersed properties for women and their children. 

About the Role

The senior mental health IDVA works in close partnership with Southwark CMHT to ensure survivors of domestic abuse with mental health issues receive high quality support. 
As the mental health IDVA you will work from one of Southwark’s busy CMHT offices. You will provide support and advice to CMHT staff, ensuring that survivors of domestic abuse accessing mental health services are given the correct advice, support and safety planning. You will act as the link worker between CMHT and Solace’s wider response to domestic abuse in Southwark, aiming to increase referrals from CMHT into the Southwark SASS service and improve partnership working between the two agencies. In addition, you will work directly with survivors of abuse, carrying out risk and needs assessments, safety planning and short-term casework as required.

About You

If you demonstrate commitment, innovation, passion, non-judgemental and collaboration, you’ll thrive in our diverse feminist team of professional women. 
Ideal candidates will have experience working with victim/survivors of VAWG and a solid understanding of the support options available to them. You will have strong leadership skills, thrive on working under pressure, and be adept at crisis management and prioritising your workload to meet the demands of this busy service.
In return, we offer great employee benefits including three per cent employer pension contribution, generous holiday entitlement and a focus on learning and development.
