About SafeLives

We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.

Last year alone, nearly 13,500 professionals received our training. Over 70,000 adults at risk of serious harm or murder and more than 85,000 children received support through dedicated multi-agency support designed by us and delivered with partners. In the last four years, over 2,000 perpetrators have been challenged and supported to change by interventions we created with partners, and that’s just the start.

Together we can end domestic abuse. Forever. For everyone.

Role summary

Your role is to deepen multi-agency capability, consistency and capacity across Scotland, contributing to the following core objectives:

• Improvement of multi-agency practice.

• Amplifying the impact of optimal multi-agency, risk-led approaches.

• Ensuring multi-agency systems are survivor-centred and accessible to all.

You will increase consistency of Marac operation across Scotland by sharing best practice with a network of Marac professionals, partners and stakeholders. You will guide activity to open up the multi-agency pathway for those at the highest risk of domestic abuse in Scotland, and support creation of an effective collaborative response based around a common understanding of risk and informed by survivors' authentic voice.

The aim of this work is to promote coordinated ways of working that support women to be safer, sooner. This role contributes to Equally Safe Priority 3 and is linked to a broader set of work across the VAWG sector in Scotland that seeks to galvanise whole system improvement for those experiencing domestic abuse.
