Following on from a three-year project delivering prevention and awareness workshops in schools as well as 1:1 support for 13-19yrs, we have been awarded an additional grant to extend Break The Cycle services to include a Hidden Harm CYPVA.   Southend based Safe Steps is delighted to recruit for this new and exciting role to its Break The Cycle team for children and young people affected by domestic abuse.

The Break The Cycle team work within the community, schools, youth organisations, and other agencies to deliver a proactive programme focussing on the prevention of abuse and the promotion of positive relationships, within families and interpersonal relationships.  This new role will work across adult and CYP services to develop, identify and engage with CYP living in Southend who are affected by domestic abuse as well as parental problematic drug/alcohol misuse, mental health, offending and homelessness.  The role will include managing a 1:1 caseload of CYP exposed to diverse risk, working alongside professionals to identify those children and young people affected by parental/carer substance misuse, domestic abuse, parental/carer mental ill-health and strengthen referral and care pathways between adult services, children’s social care teams and substance misuse services.   

Relevant experience of working with children and young people is essential as is a knowledge of either the domestic abuse sector, drug/alcohol services, probation or mental health.  In addition, the ability to engage with young people through a range of media is key as is the ability to deliver groups and training.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who have already achieved an IDVA accreditation, with a willingness to gain a YPVA Diploma.  Safe Steps is committed to staff training and development and with that in mind, is also prepared to consider applications from those candidates with the necessary experience of casework with victims of domestic violence who are willing to undertake an IDVA accreditation (OCN level 3) and then to go onto achieving the expert level YPVA course.
