Fixed term for 12 months
We work with organisations across the UK to transform the response to domestic abuse. We want what you would want for your best friend. We listen to survivors, putting their voices at the heart of our thinking. We look at the whole picture for each individual and family to get the right help at the right time to make families everywhere safe and well. And we challenge perpetrators to change, asking ‘why doesn’t he stop?’ rather than ‘why doesn’t she leave?’ This applies whatever the gender of the victim or perpetrator and whatever the nature of their relationship. We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.
Last year alone, nearly 11,000 professionals working on the frontline received our training. Over 65,000 adults at risk of serious harm or murder and more than 85,000 children received support through dedicated multi-agency support designed by us and delivered with partners. In the last three years, over 1,000 perpetrators have been challenged and supported to change by interventions we created with partners, and that’s just the start.
To provide effective and efficient co-ordination of resources and support for the Training team and the learners across all SafeLives’ training programmes.
SafeLives’ Training team develops the knowledge and skills of professionals responding to victims and survivors of domestic abuse, whether adults, young people or children. The programme includes sector-leading accredited training - foundation and expert courses - for independent domestic violence advisors (Idvas) and independent domestic abuse advocates in Scotland (Idaas), independent sexual violence advisors (Isvas), domestic violence and abuse outreach workers, and other frontline workers who come into contact with people experiencing domestic abuse.
SafeLives also delivers Domestic Abuse Matters (DA Matters), a change programme for police officers and staff which we deliver on behalf of the national College of Policing.
SafeLives is very proud of its reputation for high-quality training programmes, and your role in maintaining our standards and delivering for learners will be vital.
