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.

This is a busy role within our Enough! project that delivers support for young women experiencing domestic abuse in their own relationship. You will work with young women aged 13 to 21 years old, providing person centered therapeutic support. Many of our young women have complex needs including care leavers and young mums. You will support the young women by working alongside partner agencies to advocate for them to achieve the best possible outcomes. You will deliver a group work programme and will be part of the dedicated evening drop in for the service. Part of your role will be to raise awareness of domestic abuse among young women and deliver prevention work. You will manage referrals, waiting lists, support plans and case records.

It is essential that you have experience of providing support to young women who have experienced gendered based violence and that you have experience of providing 1-1 person centered support. Knowledge of the court system would be desirable. A suitable qualification relevant to working with children and young people, such as SVQ Level 3 Social Service (Children and Young People) is also essential. 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.
