Family Intervention Co-ordinator – (Women’s Services)  – part time (22.5 hrs pw), £21,312 pro rata

A Way Out is looking to recruit to an innovative new post to provide a new service for families of clients who are accessing our Liberty Service, which provides an outreach, and recovery service for adult women with complex needs who are drug and alcohol dependent, socially isolated and involved in survival sex work.  The aim of this role is to improve wellbeing, strengthen family relationships and build resilience.  The Family Intervention Worker will provide 1-to-1 and group support to help families understand the causes and consequences of addiction and sex work, learn to identify and manage risks, and develop communication strategies and skills such as problem solving, boundary setting and self care. The role will also support families to address the trauma they have experienced that has led to or been caused by the behaviour of the clients (such as domestic violence and abuse or other types of offending) and to overcome isolation (caused by the stigma of addiction and sex working) through building or rebuilding peer and wider community relationships (including connecting them to local community organisations).  This support will also enable the family to provide the encouragement and support the sense of identity and purpose and hope that change is possible, for clients to seek support and prevent further abuse, harm and exploitation.
