Together Women have been commissioned to provide needs led support to women under the supervision of the National Probation Service across South Yorkshire as part of the Women’s Justice Partnership (WJP). This comprises of leading South Yorkshire charities: Together Women, GROW and Changing Lives.
Women become involved in the Criminal Justice System for a complex range of reasons. In our gender specific centres, we provide holistic support to women by women, to overcome challenges and address needs, enabling them to successfully move-on from services and live fulfilling, crime free, flourishing lives. We will be particularly required to support women with overcoming issues around their:
- Personal Wellbeing
- Finance, Benefits and Debts
- Employment, Training and Education
- Family and Significant Others
- Lifestyle and Associates
- Social Inclusion
- Dependency and Recovery
This role will be part of the WJP, delivering an inclusive and supportive programme driven to achieve the best for local communities. You will work closely with local community organisations to encourage women to access existing resources, as well as working to build new opportunities. You will support women to build upon their strengths and work through any barriers that are preventing them from progressing and achieving their potential.
This role requires agile working, which, will include being office based, delivering within the community and with the possibility of some remote working, therefore, you will need to be able to work effectively independently, and as a virtual team, under pressure to meet challenging deadlines. You may also be required to provide in-reach support to women in custody, therefore prison clearance may be required.
