We are delighted to be expanding our services in the London Borough of Ealing and are now recruiting staff for an exciting new community support service for those who cannot or do not want to access refuge but who need support because of domestic violence. As a result, we are now looking for Outreach Support Workers to join this new team.

We are looking for 3 Outreach Support Workers for our new Reach Out service in Ealing. The overall aim of these roles is to provide high-quality support to women and men experiencing domestic violence whilst living in the community. In addition, you will be responsible for implementing a range of interventions and support measures as part of an integrated package of health, therapeutic and social support to survivors experiencing DVA. Furthermore, you will work in partnership with local and national services to improve and achieve best outcomes for the women.

The new Ealing Reach Out service will provide one-to-one support services to victims/survivors in safe accommodation other than refuge settings, including:

- in temporary local authority provided accommodation
- working women in temporary accommodation (including staying with extended family or friends)
- male victims/survivors
- transgender victims/survivors
- women with large families
- BAME women

The service will provide a range of support that offers Ealing residents a personalised pathway away from domestic violence and abuse and builds on their strengths and aspirations for the future.

Candidates interested in applying should select the apply button and attach a cover letter outlining how they meet the essential criteria specified in the job ad as well as how they think they meet Housing for Women’s EPIC values.

Other organisations may call this role Domestic Abuse Support Worker, DVA Support Worker, Community Support Worker, Refuge Support Worker, IDVA, or Independent Domestic Violence Advisor.
