Key Support Worker

National Service: Supporting Families Bereaved Through Crime

Our mission at Victim Support Scotland is to ensure that those affected by crime receive high quality support that will help them to recover from their experiences. We want victims and witnesses to be at the heart of everything we do so they have improved health and well-being, feel safer, more secure and informed and that we are an effective organisation, that makes a lasting difference. We aim to do this by adhering to our own organisational values of being supportive, striving for excellence and offering personalised and accessible services and these are reflected in the behaviours expected of all staff and volunteers.

To help achieve this mission, VSS have designed implemented a new National Service: Supporting Families Bereaved by Crime from 1st April 2019.

As a member of this team and reporting to the National Co-ordinator, the role of Key Support Worker will be to provide comprehensive support to families bereaved by murder or culpable homicide. This will involve providing structured social support, practical support, information, liaising with other justice and community organisations, supporting the family as they interact with the criminal justice system and helping them to reach a new balance in their lives after trauma.

You will play a key part in the ongoing evaluation, development and improvement of the service. You will work closely with Police Scotland and representatives from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.

As this is national role travel to all parts of the country will be required in order to support families at appropriate locations to best meet their needs. This may involve travelling out of hours with limited access to public transport. A current, clean driving licence is therefore essential to the post.

The base for the team is in Glasgow, and whilst all VSS employees are working flexibly at the moment, it should be noted that to support the implementation, development and delivery of the national service, it will be a requirement of the role to attend the Glasgow office at times.

This post will be subject to a satisfactory PVG check

Victim Support Scotland is the country’s leading charity providing emotional and practical support to people affected by all types of crime. VSS’s current strategy Victims and Witnesses First: VSS Strategic Plan 2018-2021, outlines its vision to ensure that all victims of crime get the help and support they need, when they need it. This strategy also articulates the organisation’s ambition to be an inclusive and modern organisation, reaching victims in ways that suit their needs. The organisation has made a great deal of progress with this over the previous two and a half years, however there is much still to be done and VSS welcomes applications from experienced individuals who would like to join our Board of Trustees.

Ideally, we would prefer applications from those who already have some experience of serving on a Board, but if you don’t, we would still like to hear from you if you have the desire and enthusiasm to take on a new challenge.

In order to be considered, you must have experience of working at board level or at a senior management level, as well as specialist knowledge in one or more of the following areas; governance, HR, IT, income generation / fund raising, marketing & PR, strategic planning and performance / quality management. We would also welcome application from people with lived experience who have been affected by crime.

The roles are rewarding and you would play an important part in developing our strategy and vision, to help victims and witnesses take control and rebuild their lives in the aftermath of crime.

An understanding of the principles which govern Scottish charities or the not-for-profit sector would be useful but is not essential.

Board roles are unremunerated, although reasonable expenses will be paid. The average time commitment is around 1-2 days a month.
