About this role
The women who enter our housing support services, often have multiple experiences of abuse and disadvantage, including childhood abuse, domestic and sexual violence and exploitation through prostitution including coercion and control. They may have physical and mental health problems, criminal records and experience of street homelessness, any combination of which can lead to learned survival and coping strategies that can often be a barrier to accessing and benefiting from support services.
Our aim is to provide a safe place that accepts women as they are whilst supporting them to identify goals and find ways of moving forward and away from the harm they live with.
We have full and part-time vacancies for support workers based in our women’s housing support services in Glasgow. We also have opportunities to join our relief staff team. Relief hours are based on service delivery needs and offer an exciting chance to build your experience and skills in social care, these roles are ideally suited to students and those who can be flexible with their time and availability.
