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.

Are you passionate about children and children’s rights? Do you enjoy working with children and do you have experience of working with children who have experienced trauma? We are looking for a CYP Refuge and Follow On Worker to join our team and provide vital support to children dealing with the trauma of domestic abuse and leaving their home. You will ensure that children, from babies to teenagers, are given a service which is driven by them and meets their needs. Our children’s service includes 1-1 therapeutic support, therapeutic focused group work and free play sessions. You will also provide support as children move on from refuge. An important part of this role will be the development and delivery of innovative and creative groupwork.

A qualification relevant to working with children and young people, such as SVQ Level 3 Social Service (Children and Young People) is also required. You must be able to drive with access to a car. The nature of our work requires a commitment to the feminist analysis of domestic abuse and to the values of Glasgow Women’s Aid.
