About the service

About IRIS – Identification and Referral to Improve Safety (Haringey)

IRIS improves the quality of care given by GP surgeries to women experiencing domestic violence. IRIS is a general practice-based domestic violence training, support, referral and recording programme for primary care staff. It is a targeted intervention for patients aged 16 and above experiencing current or former domestic violence from a partner, ex-partner or adult family member. IRIS provides training and education, clinical enquiry tools and health education resources to general practice teams.  IRIS provides a named contact for patient referrals and advocacy to patients experiencing current or former domestic violence. IRIS is centered in partnership work, with primary care and specialist third sector agencies coming together to deliver services and promote work across the historical gap.

The role

We are looking for highly organised and self-motivated woman who is passionate about ending male violence against women and girls.  You will have a ‘can-do’ approach and demonstrable commitment to nia’s feminist approach to supporting women and their children to be safer.

The post will be subject to an enhanced vetting and barring check, but this does not necessarily exclude applicants, and open to women only. Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR), Schedule 9 (Work; Exceptions), Part 1 (Occupational Requirements), of the Equality Act (2010) applies.

CV’s will not be accepted.  

Closing Date:                         10am, 17th December 2020         

Interview Date:                       22nd December 2020
