We’re seeking two Domestic Abuse Safe Accommodation Support and Outreach Workers to support men and LGBTQ+ people experiencing domestic abuse and stalking.

  • Supporting consultations with the community to enhance understanding of domestic abuse and housing needs.
  • Raising awareness about domestic abuse services for men and LGBTQ+ people through events, resource distribution, and training sessions.
