Who are we?
We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.
Last year alone, nearly 13,500 professionals received our training. Over 70,000 adults at risk of serious harm or murder and more than 85,000 children received support through dedicated multi-agency support designed by us and delivered with partners. In the last four years, over 2,000 perpetrators have been challenged and supported to change by interventions we created with partners, and that’s just the start.
Together we can end domestic abuse. Forever. For everyone.
Key purpose of role
This role has been created to lead a brand new programme, funded by the Scottish Government, to build consistency in how domestic abuse court advocacy provision is delivered across Scotland. Working collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders including an expert practitioner based within ASSIST, you will shape and guide work to develop the evidence base and an accreditation process that will support the creation of national standards for domestic abuse court advocacy services. You will also be involved in creating a new training module on domestic abuse court advocacy to enhance the existing Independent Domestic Abuse Advocacy (Idaa) training course.
You will scope, plan and lead the activity we have been funded for, to build a robust accreditation framework that includes service standards and training for DA court advocacy providers. This will include establishing and working with a steering group to oversee the programme, and an accreditation panel to support implementation. You will also manage extensive engagement activities with multiple stakeholders from within and beyond the VAWG sector and the criminal justice system. This includes creative engagement with survivors to ensure that lived experience is embedded throughout the process in line with SafeLives’ Authentic Voice strategy. Likewise, in following SafeLives’ Equity Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EEDI) strategy, you will reach out widely to reflect a variety of perspectives, experiences and expertise in your work.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has been at the heart of safety and health in the UK since 1916. Since our early days improving road safety during the blackouts of the First World War, we have existed for a simple reason – to stop the needless loss and devastation caused by accidents. A registered charity, we are committed to continuing this legacy of change through a whole-life approach to the prevention of accidental deaths and serious injuries at home, at work, on the road, at leisure and in schools and colleges.
RoSPA’s Community Safety Team in Scotland plays a vital function in helping to achieve this – delivering home and water safety programmes that address some of the most pressing accident prevention needs of our time.

Additionally the pandemic has resulted in the need for the re-conditioning of older people who have been unable to benefit from regular movement to help them avoid falls and the post holder will seek opportunities to rectify this.
Our vision is to save everyone. It may take us a long time to get there, but drowning is preventable, and we believe that even one drowning is one too many. We are all lifesavers. We are all fundraisers. This is our watch.
