LGBTQ+ Independent Domestic Abuse Adviser (IDVA)

Location: Brighton & surrounds
Closing Date: 22nd Aug 2022
Helpline & Volunteer Coordinator

Employment Type: Employed

Switchboard’s Domestic Abuse service provides a holistic and affirming support to LGBTQ victims and survivors of domestic abuse across Sussex. This exciting role joins a growing team to deliver a ‘by and for’ LGBTQ domestic abuse service. We’re looking for someone with experience of a frontline support role, but will cover the costs of a widely recognised ‘IDVA’ qualification for the successful candidate if needed.

The role will include casework with victims and survivors, as well as creative outreach, training and awareness raising among both the LGBTQ community and the Domestic Violence sectors as we promote and grow our service. If you are a passionate LGBTQ advocate with knowledge of the unique needs and inequalities faced by our communities and experience of casework or working within a busy frontline role, then we would love to hear from you.

The project will involve engaging with LGBTQ groups and individuals, listening carefully to the voices of victims and survivors and adapting your approach, building trust and supporting people to access Switchboard as well as other services they may need.

We do not accept CV’s or covering letters. Please take a look at the Job Pack and complete the application form provided on our website.
