This role is to provide support for children, young people, and their families who have been affected by domestic violence and abuse, homelessness and other traumatic life events and will be embedded in our Children’s Services Team. The role is to deliver interventions which will help children and families to thrive. The post holder will provide therapeutic support to children and families, to develop safe coping strategies by exploring how life experiences have impacted them, facilitate repair and recovery work with them to improve their emotional well-being and develop confidence and resilience against future harm.

About us:

PTMWA is a women-led organisation whose vision is to ensure that people, suffering, or at risk of domestic abuse receive appropriate support. We assist recovery by providing safe accommodation, specialist support services and by working in partnership with other agencies. We also run the only museum dedicated to telling the story of women’s fight for the right to vote at our Pankhurst Centre headquarters.

We are a diverse organisation with 27% of our staff coming from BAME and 23% from LGBT communities. We span the generations with 29% of staff being aged 18-24 and 10% aged 55-64. 11% of staff identify as having a disability.

Our staff, volunteers and service users took time to reflect on who we are and what we do when we are at our best. This reflection showed that we can proudly claim to be:

Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change

Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters

Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together

Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging

About You:

You will be a pro-active, reliable individual who reflects the values of PTMWA in all that you do. Your experiences, whether in paid or voluntary work, will enable you to fulfil the role requirements but it is your attitude and character that will make you a successful team member.

You will enjoy a challenge and actively participate in delivering and developing services of the highest standard.

About the role:

We welcome applications from people seeking part-time (17.5 hours) work as well as full-time (35). All roles are subject to a DBS check, and we seek 2 x references, 1 of whom must be your current employer if applicable

This role has been assessed and confirmed as open to women only under the Equality Act 2010, schedule 9, part 1.
