An exciting opportunity has arisen for Domestic Abuse Outreach Worker at Bury St Edmunds Women's Aid Centre.

You will be responsible for providing high quality specialist frontline domestic abuse support to people living in the area. Working with colleagues and other statutory and voluntary agencies you will assist service users to access services to support, keep them safe and rebuild their lives.

You will also be responsible for developing partnerships and relationships with statutory and voluntary agencies, and local and national specialist agencies working within the local community. You will work with those agencies to increase staff awareness and to increase confidence, skills and knowledge in relation to domestic abuse.

This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are committed to helping survivors to break the cycle of domestic abuse and support their recovery.
