The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid) is recruiting for the IRIS (Identification and Referral to Improve Safety) domestic violence and abuse (DVA) training and support service to cover maternity leave.  IRIS is a national, evidence based DVA training, support and referral service for General Practices – a collaboration between Health and third sector organisations specialising in DVA.  It has been in operation in Manchester since 2012 and now offers IRIS training and delivers a specialist DVA service across every GP practice in Manchester.

About us: The IRIS service is delivered by The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid), a women-led organisation whose vision is to ensure that people who are, or have suffered domestic abuse receive appropriate support. We provide safe accommodation, specialist support services, group work and work in partnership with other agencies to ensure the safety and well-being of individuals experiencing DVA.  In addition to our domestic abuse services, we deliver a range of services from our base at the Pankhurst Centre including a women’s drop-in, food bank and heritage centre in recognition of the achievements of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters.

About the role: We are seeking to appoint a skilled individual to provide one to one support, advocacy and signposting to individuals who are currently, or have experienced DVA.  You will work holistically to support individuals to manage their risk, increase their safety and help them to achieve better outcomes for themselves and their children.  All referrals will be individuals who have been identified by clinicians or support staff in General Practices so in addition to case management you will be expected to offer support and advice about DVA and in particular its effects on health.
