Job Description

Summary

Up2U: Creating Healthy Relationships is an innovative programme developed by Portsmouth City Council for people who use domestically abusive behaviours in their intimate partner relationships. The programme is evidence based and has been developed in consultation with the support of a Quality Assurance Group consisting of representatives from Victim Support Services, Mental Health, Children's Services, Substance Misuse Services and Health. It is based on research and practice successfully used in offender rehabilitation, motivational interviewing and attachment theory.

You will provide a high-quality and pro-active front-line service to both perpetrators and victims of domestic abuse; delivering a pathway of care focussing on change, safety and protection. This will be done through one-to-one/group sessions, including safety planning and risk assessments, to perpetrators plus the delivery of mirrored sessions to their victims.

We particularly welcome applicants from BAMER communities that are currently under-represented in our organisation. Appointment will be on merit alone. We will recruit the first suitable applicants, so apply early as we may close earlier. An enhanced DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) disclosure will be required for these roles.

Closing date: Tuesday 26th February 2019 at 9am
Interviews: Week Commencing 4th March
