Domestic Abuse Navigator

Job Details

About the role

We know that some domestic abuse victims and survivors in Camden need ongoing and additional support, once risk has been reduced and safety has been achieved. We know that the experience of VAWG intersects with severe disadvantage, increasing survivor’s vulnerability and posing additional barriers to recovery. Our model is predicated on assertive outreach, a trauma-informed approach, flexible 1-1 and group support which helps victims and survivors receive the support they need. Building on successful programmes, the VAWG Navigator team will be based in the community and will work at an individual survivor’s pace delivering high quality interventions along the continuum of need that enables greater safety in their accommodation or alleviates homelessness, improves engagement and recovery.

About you

  • Ability to build strong trusted strengths-based relationships with victims/survivors of VAWG and who have experienced multiple disadvantage
  • An understanding of the impact of VAWG on survivors and children
  • Experience of support planning and risk assessment
  • An understanding of cultural diversity and how to provide safe responses
  • Experience of maintaining excellent relationships and experience of building trusting partnerships across the multi-agency spectrum
  • Ability to advocate for survivors and their children
  • Ability to bring (to where?) the voice of survivors and lived experience of children to influence the system and need for change
  • You will be resilient and be able to work with people with multiple disadvantage
