You’ll work closely with the female partners and former partners of men who use DVIP’s services, offering support and information to women who have experienced domestic violence.

You may be co-located some regular days within a referring agency, usually Children’s Services, working as a DV specialist to offer support to professionals around their responses to women experiencing abuse, and to meet with women in their local boroughs. You will co-facilitate women’s support groups.


You must have strong experience of working directly with women on domestic violence issues, both in responding to crises and longer term support interventions.  You should have experience of working with women from BME or faith groups.
