Domestic Abuse Support Coordinator
Location: Nottingham, Ollerton, Loughborough or Derbyshire - To Cover East Midlands
Fixed Term for 12 months
Salary: £21,555 - £25,668 per annum
Hours: 37 per week, full time
Do you want a role where no two days are the same, where every day you can go to work knowing you’re making a vital difference to someone’s life? Have you got an understanding of domestic abuse and the impact this can have on individuals living with or fleeing abuse?
As our Domestic Abuse Coordinator, you will join NCHA's Customer Support Team and provide initial risk management, safety planning, support advice and referrals to MARAC (where appropriate) and local specialist domestic abuse services, presenting customer cases at MARAC and other statutory meetings. You’ll support colleagues across NCHA to recognise and respond to cases of domestic abuse that affect our customers.
The post can be based at Nottingham, Ollerton, Loughborough or Derbyshire – whatever suits you best! The post will be covering the East Midlands so travel across the region is part of the role. Core hours will be Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, but flexibility is required.
So what will you be doing?
You’ll support customers in the initial stages after abuse is disclosed before they choose to secure support from local DA agencies; refer customers to local DA services, working with local authorities and NCHA colleagues to coordinate target hardening measures and/or property transfers where appropriate. Establishing partnership working with local authorities and specialist services across the East Midlands will be a core part of the role.
Who are we looking for?
You will have experience of working with people affected by domestic abuse. You will have a sound working knowledge of using the DASH risk assessment and presenting cases at MARAC. You will understand the dynamics of domestic abuse and practice trauma informed care. You'll understand that, as a housing provider, we are a key partner in the coordinated community response to domestic abuse. We are a housing provider working across the East Midlands with a large and diverse customer base so you'll understand intersectionality and take an intersectional approach in your practice.
