We are a feminist all woman independent organisation based in Croydon providing specialist and confidential support services to female survivors of sexual violence from age 5 who live in any borough in South London. We are a member of Rape Crisis (England and Wales) and adhere to their national occupational standards and a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited Counselling Centre. Our ethos is to offer survivors a professional, and specialist service dedicated to the healing and empowerment of survivors of sexual violence in an environment of empowerment, trust and compassion.

The woman we are looking for should have experience of working in the VAWG or Criminal Justice Sector. Ideally you should be a qualified ISVA, however full training and line management will be provided. You will hold a case load based on your experience and will work solely with women and girls over 12 who are thinking of reporting to the police, or who have already reported to the police. Your role will be to provide these survivors with a mix of emotional, practical and factual support so they are able to make informed decisions that are right for them. In addition to this you will work with criminal justice agencies to advocate for your client’s needs; and signpost clients to appropriate agencies for their individual needs. You will be joining an enthusiastic and established team of ISVAs.
