About the organisation
nia has been delivering services to women, girls and children who have experienced domestic and sexual violence since 1975. The organisation has three main aims: to provide services for women, girls and children who have experienced men’s violence; contributing to ending male violence against women and girls, and to inform and influence policy and public awareness.
The Emma Project and Daria House are specialist services providing refuge and support services to women who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual violence, including women who have been sexually exploited through prostitution and who also use substances problematically.
About the post
The service is currently funded until March 2023, with a possibility of further extension. It is our policy to try to offer staff alternative posts in the organisation if funding for the post they are filling ends.
The working hours for this post are Sessional Hours (evenings and weekends)
In the role of Assistant Support Worker, you will be responsible to support the service manager and team leader to ensure the day to day effective and efficient operation of the refuges. You will be based either at the Emma Project (Camden) or Daria House (Haringey). Our specialist refuge provision provides eleven units of accommodation for women who are escaping domestic and sexual violence and who use substances problematically; more than a third of the women who have lived in the refuge have also been exploited through prostitution. The women who enter the project have frequently been excluded from and/or refused access to other types of refuge provision.
We are looking for highly organised and self-motivated women who are passionate about ending violence against women, girls and children. You will have a ‘can-do’ approach and demonstrable commitment to nia’s feminist approach to supporting women and their children to be safer.
CV’s will not be accepted.
