Job description

Are you an ambitious, creative and influential practitioner who is passionate about supporting women to feel more confident and access volunteering and employment opportunities? The Pause Bristol Peer Support project recruits women who have completed the Pause programme to volunteer to supporting other Pause women.

Pause is a national independent organisation seeking to prevent the damaging consequences of thousands more children being taken into care each year by working with women who have experienced – or are at risk of – repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care. The programme gives women the chance to pause and take control over their lives, breaking a destructive cycle that causes both them and their children deep trauma, as well as reducing huge costs to society and the taxpayer.

Peer Support project Role

As a Pause Peer Support Co-ordinator you will be responsible for continuing to manage the peer support element of the work, which we are running as part of Pause Bristol. The aim of the work is to continue to develop the peer support programme for women who have completed Pause (Next Steps women) and run a weekly group for all Pause women. You will be responsible for ensuring that up to date information regarding effective peer support informs the service. You will also be responsible for recruitment, training, peer supervision and recording feedback and outcomes.

You will be managed by the Pause Lead Pracitioner who will support you to plan and deliver the work. You will be a big part of a small team, where everyone takes a flexible and collaborative approach to work, and is committed to improving outcomes for vulnerable and marginalised groups.
