Do you have the skills to be our newest full time Project Worker?

If you are passionate about making a positive difference, supporting women and working in an
established charity you may be the person to join A Way Out’s Liberty team. You will support the
delivery of the Liberty Service outreach and recovery program, meeting and building relationships
with vulnerable women and holding a caseload of those women who require support from agencies
for a range of issues, who have had experience of exploitation, violence, abuse, and trauma offering
practical and emotional support to encourage and motivate change.

You will be joining a team that delivers an assertive outreach and recovery program working within a
trauma informed and strengths-based approach using a three staged model of engagement. Our
prime focus is on tackling and addressing issues which affect women who sell sex and women who
have/are experiencing sexual exploitation and the wide range of associated issues i.e., substance
misuse, homelessness, offending, historic trauma, mental health etc.

We aim to enable and empower women to make positive choices, improving their safety through
harm reduction interventions and supporting them throughout their recovery journey increasing
opportunities for access to services. You will be part of a team of staff and volunteers providing
evening and late-night outreach, daytime outreach, low threshold drop-ins, group work and one to
one recovery support, intending to enhance the lifestyles of women, whilst widening their long-term
aspirations.

Alongside role responsibilities, Liberty team staff individually champion specified areas of team
delivery e.g.: mental health, housing, domestic abuse, digital engagement etc. In the first instance we
are looking for someone with experience of supporting clients with mental health issues alongside
other complex needs. The post holder will lead on keeping up to date with local, regional and national
mental health issues and responses and how they affect our clients. They will share knowledge and
experience with the wider team and help facilitate and support information sharing to promote choice
and independence with clients.
