Domestic Abuse Navigator Lead
Location: 5 Pancras Square, LONDON, N1C 4AG
Planned start date: January 2023 – subject to recruitment
This is a new role and service in Camden – you will be responsible for shaping the new service. We know that some domestic abuse victims and survivors in Camden need ongoing and additional support, once risk has been reduced and safety has been achieved. We know that the experience of VAWG intersects with severe disadvantage, increasing survivor’s vulnerability and posing additional barriers to recovery. In this newly established team the focus is assertive outreach, a trauma-informed approach, flexible 1-1 and group support which helps victims and survivors receive the support they need.
You will be responsible for leading the service, promoting the service across the organisation, and negotiating with stakeholders to advocate for the service and survivors. Building on successful programmes, the DA Navigator team will be based in the community and will work at an individual survivor’s pace delivering high quality interventions along the continuum of need that enables greater safety in their accommodation or alleviates homelessness, improves engagement and recovery. The team will develop a strong constant relationship with survivors, working with a small case load to provide a person-centred offers and building relationships across the council.
This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and will require an Enhanced DBS.
