SAY Women is a leading provider of services to sexually abused young women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Since 1991 we have pioneered projects and approaches which help young women survivors make progress in their lives, with the help of our support, safe accommodation and opportunities to learn coping strategies, skills for self-care and to feel more empowered.
Our practice is based on gendered analysis, a feminist perspective and trauma-informed approach.
Say Women provides support and accommodation for 8 young women who have experienced homelessness and sexual abuse. Our work with them follows the Judith Herman model, focusing on establishing safety, and then supporting young women’s recovery and their journey towards an independent tenancy and becoming reconnected with a social network and community helping them thrive.
This work is carried out in partnership with Shettleston Housing Association in one accommodation block with flats, and our office and support space, and an outreach flat (shared) nearby.
SAY Women strives to be an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications from individuals who are disadvantaged and under-represented in the labour market. These posts are open to female applicants by exemption under Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010 and subject to PVG disclosure checks.
