We’re looking for a brilliant Peer Support Officer to develop and deliver a voluntary peer support programme alongside women across London. You will work closely with the nine Pause Practices currently being delivered in London. This post is one of several being piloted across the Pause network to test and develop new approaches to Next Steps.  


We’re looking for someone who shares our commitment to ensuring that women who have experience of the Pause programme are at the heart of decision-making, and that we work together to learn, collaboratively solve challenges and grow.

We would particularly like to hear from people who have lived experience of children’s services, and from BAME communities, both of whom are currently underrepresented in the national team.
