Could you support men who have experienced sexual abuse, sexual assault or rape?
Are you willing to undertake training to become a qualified Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA)?
We’re looking for a passionate person to join our small team and use their skills to provide specialist support to men engaging with the criminal justice system.
You will be involved in delivering a unique pan-London service making sure that survivors understand their rights through a police investigation and the court process. You will be empathetic and will understand the barriers to reporting sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape to the police. You will be an essential source of practical and emotional support.
We are a dynamic, forward thinking organisation which is committed to continuing to provide counselling, emotional support, ISVAs (Independent Sexual Violation Advisors) and groupwork services. We especially want to extend these and other innovative therapeutic services to clients who traditionally are regarded as ‘hard to reach’, such as male survivors aged 13-18, sex workers, trans clients and clients from BAME communities.
- Support those who identify as male and who have been abused or violated
- Challenge the silence surrounding male sexual abuse
- Build communities of support for survivors of male sexual abuse
Successful applicants will have significant knowledge of sexual violence and its impact on men and boys, experience of providing practical and emotional support as well as strong casework management skills.
Applicants are required to have an ISVA training qualification or be willing to attend training to obtain this.
This role is open to people of any gender.
