nia has been delivering services to women, girls and children who have been subjected to sexual and domestic violence and abuse, including prostitution, 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.
IRIS improves the quality of care given by GP surgeries to women experiencing domestic violence. The IRIS Advocate Educator will roll out a new IRIS service across the London borough of Barking and Dagenham and will provide training to G.P. practices and support women referred to the service.
The posts are funded by the Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) which has invested £1m to promote and improve the health care response to gender based violence in London.
London’s (VRU) is taking a public health approach to violence reduction, that is contextual; looking at the context and influences that impact on individuals at significant points in their life.
