It has been developed by PACT and provides support to families once the abuse has ended and the perpetrator is no longer living in the family home. The project also delivers a programme for teens and their non-abusive parent/carer (Recovery Toolkit). PACT are currently developing a complementary under fives programme which would result in a service for children of all ages. BB4K also offers one-to-one support and signposting for families that need immediate support or are not suitable to attend a group programme. The team also delivers training to professionals.
The BB4K senior support worker will be responsible for leading this vital project including promotion, overseeing enquiries and referrals, delivering, reporting, monitoring and development and ensure that all aspects of the service are maintained with the highest of quality standards. In order to achieve these outcomes for families you will oversee and support a committed, passionate and integral team of volunteers, including students, as well as recruit new members of the team into a variety of roles.
You will succeed in this role if you have an in-depth knowledge of domestic abuse and the long term impact on survivors' experience. You will also need excellent group work skills and experience of supporting children and young people. The post holder will also need sound administrative skills in order to complete measurement tools and necessary reporting.
