About FEM project
The FEM project is a partnership project with Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre, Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre and Moray Rape Crisis Centre. The project is funded to pilot an innovative, cross-region approach to increasing accessibility and inclusivity of rape crisis support for 75 women survivors of sexual violence with learning difficulties and/or from BME communities across 7 local authority areas ranging from Central to North East Scotland.
The post-holder will be responsible for developing and delivering specialist therapeutic support and advocacy for survivors of sexual violence with learning needs and disabilities in Forth Valley. The post-holder will take a survivor-centred approach, informed by an understanding of trauma, including complex trauma, and an intersectional feminist ethos. The post-holder will be required to deliver both short-term and longer-term support, alongside initial assessment appointments and text/email support. A key aspect of the role will also include service development and joint working with statutory, third sector and community organisations in Forth Valley, which provide services to people with learning disabilities, including the development of referral pathways.
This is a very exciting new project, which affords the postholder the opportunity to develop new and existing services with the potential to significantly influence how support services are delivered in future, possibly at national scale and beyond.
