Role

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of young females who have become homeless or are at risk of homelessness through no fault of their own?

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of young females who are survivors of sexual abuse by helping them develop the skills needed to cope with what has happened to them and build an independent life and positive future?

Are you passionate about the eradication of Men’s Violence against Women & Girls and women's homelessness from a feminist perspective?

Do you have a few spare hours every week for a new challenge?

As a Sessional Worker with SAY Women, you will bring your enthusiasm, empathy and practical skills to help our staff members support the 8 young women who live in our Accommodation Project. You will be one of our relief workers giving their spare time to our Project, so your weekly hours will be flexible and fit with the time you have available.

The Project is semi-supported accommodation, with the tenants living in their own flat supported by our staff based in the same building. We give these young women a safe home, help them establish safety, gain independent living skills and provide emotional support to cope with their experience of sexual abuse and violence.

When you join SAY Women, you join a community providing a warm and welcoming environment for all of our staff and young women. Our values run through every aspect of our attitude, approach and service provision, empowering our young women and staff with Courage, Compassion and Connection.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference to young women’s lives, as well as honing your own support skills and gaining experience in project working with vulnerable young women.
