Family Choices Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Programme Facilitator (Reading)
Full Time: 37.5 hours per week
Salary: £24,000 per annum
BWA works to enable people living with the devastating impact of domestic abuse to see and make choices about their future and to rebuild safe and strong lives, free from abuse.
Family Choices is a 25 week programme aimed at addressing abusive behaviour for those who have acknowledged the abuse and demonstrated a desire to change. The programme aims to hold perpetrators of domestic abuse to account whilst exploring the impact their behaviour has on survivors and children. It also aims to support individuals to reduce incidents of abuse and help them develop skills and strategies to engage in healthy non-abusive relationships.
The programme puts the safety of survivors and children at the heart of the intervention and the Perpetrator Programme Facilitator works in conjunction with a dedicated Partner Support Worker who assesses the risk and completes a detailed safety plan with the survivor throughout the programme.
The role involves working with male and female perpetrators of domestic abuse, both in 1:1 sessions and a group capacity. You will explore the impact that being in an abusive relationship has on partners and children and deliver a psychoeducational intervention for those who perpetrate abuse. Delivery of training and awareness raising are requirements for the post.
You will have established experience of providing domestic abuse interventions to either survivors or perpetrators and experience working directly with a wide range of people in a service provider role. You must be a strong team player, an active and empathetic listener, able to form working relationships quickly and work within professional boundaries.
For the above vacancy, the ideal candidate will have experience of working in a confidential and safeguarding environment, and have an understanding of domestic abuse and its impact on families.
The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
