Trainee Disability and Domestic Violence Advocacy Caseworker
( £21,480 pro-rata for 17.5 hours per week)
The trainee post is for 12 months initially
You will work as part of a small team of advocacy caseworkers. You will support low risk Deaf and disabled victims/survivors of domestic violence in Newham and Waltham Forest. You will also work with our experienced Independent Domestic Violence Advocate to support clients who are at higher risk.
We are looking for a Deaf or disabled person with some direct experience of advocacy with Deaf and disabled clients, an understanding of the social model of disability, and an ability to support clients and negotiate with statutory agencies. You will shadow the existing worker and will be trained to work on domestic violence issues. You will also work alongside our volunteers. We are passionately committed to promoting human rights and getting the best for our users.
This post is open to Deaf and disabled women only as we work mainly with female domestic and sexual violence clients, and peer support by disabled people for disabled people is an essential part of our ethos (Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010). We aim to make our office and systems as accessible as possible to all our staff and volunteers.
Closing date: Monday January 4th at 12 noon. Interviews: Friday 15th January

“I recommend this training to colleagues. Very interactive.” “Huge amounts of information- the training was accessible, but not overly simplified. It will enable me to respond better to disabled clients who are victims of domestic abuse.”
