We provide information and support, refuge accommodation, outreach and follow-on support to women, children and young people living with, or who have lived with, domestic abuse. We also provide Children & Young People's Services, awareness raising and training. Office opening times: Mon-Thurs 9am-4pm; Fri 9am-1pm.
Are you passionate with the energy and commitment to provide high quality support for women who have experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse? Do you have experience of supporting women at high risk of harm or who are especially vulnerable? Can you work in a way that promotes safety and empowerment? Do you have knowledge and understanding of domestic abuse and a reflective, sensitive, non-judgemental approach? If so, we would like to hear from you.
Would you like to help us improve the lives of women, children and young people who experience domestic abuse in East Ayrshire? Do you have a willingness to learn, share your skills and work as part of a team? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you might be interested in becoming a Director of East Ayrshire Women’s Aid.
This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a team delivering vital support to vulnerable women, children and young people in East Ayrshire. You do not need to know everything there is to know about domestic abuse, but we do need to know that you are reliable and committed to our principles and values.
The position is voluntary, but we will provide you with training and support and pay your expenses. We meet at least six times a year, usually on Saturday mornings.
We welcome applications from women from all sections of the community. We particularly want to hear from women with skills and expertise in social media and communications.
We require an experienced Administration Worker to provide general and financial administrative support to our Board of Directors, management and staff teams. If you have excellent organisational and administrative skills, confident using IT and social media and also have an interest in preventing domestic abuse, we would like to hear from you.
Are you a great communicator with experience of designing and delivering training and awareness raising on violence against women and girls?

Do you have the knowledge, understanding and skills to provide high quality learning opportunities for service providers, young people and community organisations? If so, we would like to hear from you.
