Women’s Aid

Advocacy Officer (LEF)

Women’s Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. Over the past 44 years, Women’s Aid has been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice, research and policy. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.

We are a federation of over 180 organisations who provide just under 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country. We provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies and professionals working with survivors or commissioning domestic abuse services, and award a National Quality Mark for services which meet our quality standards. We hold the largest national data set on domestic abuse, and use research and evidence to inform all of our work. Our campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationships and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.

This exciting post will be an integral part of very busy and successful Campaigns and Public Affairs team, playing a leading role in shaping our response to the forthcoming Domestic Abuse Bill. The key remit of the post will be to deliver an exciting new project, funded by the Legal Education Foundation, recruiting and working with a group of survivors of domestic abuse to increase their understanding of the law and how they can use and influence it, specifically focusing on the forthcoming Domestic Abuse Bill.  You will be organising training and skill sessions and working with the survivors to develop and promote key priorities for the Domestic Abuse Bill and ensure their voices have influence in Government and in Parliament, connecting these women with key influencers. Policy, advocacy, and training expertise, and experience of direct work with ‘experts by experience’, will be a benefit.
