Glasgow Women’s Aid provides information, support and temporary accommodation for women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. We have refuge accommodation, follow on services and outreach services both for women and children across Glasgow.

The purpose of this role is to provide therapeutic support to women experiencing domestic abuse, during their stay in refuge and as they move out into the community. This will involve providing innovative and creative 1-1 and group work support. You will provide person centred support to women as they move through their journey and will advocate to make sure that women’s voices are heard and their needs are met.

It is essential that you have experience of providing support to women who have experienced gender-based violence. A suitable qualification that meets with SSSC Housing Support registration is also required (examples would be HNC Social Services or SVQ Level 3 Social Services and Healthcare). The nature of our work requires a commitment to the feminist analysis of domestic abuse and to the values of Glasgow Women’s Aid.
