We're recruiting - Outreach Worker25 Feb 2021
Jersey Community Partnership has been granted the project funding to employ an Outreach Worker who is wholly independent from the Government of Jersey, to scope out and pilot the provision of help and support available to survivors of institutional abuse in childhood.
Following the publication of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry, the Citizen’s Panel made a series of recommendations, of which Recommendation 3 centred on the provision of ‘Help and support for victims/survivors and their families’. This support must include the creation of opportunities for survivors and their families to come together, the provision of mental health and wellness programmes, and the provision of an independent advocacy service.
The Outreach Worker will lead on the engagement and establishment of relationships throughout the survivor community, and with other stakeholders, to ensure that the views of those with lived experience lead the discussion and inform the establishment of any provisions.
The successful candidate will have a suitable qualification and/or proven experience of working with and supporting survivor communities and abuse-related organisations. You will have experience of leading, planning and delivering community outreach and engagement activities, working with a wide variety of partners and stakeholders.
