“Through fair, inclusive, culturally aware, and compassionate approaches, we deliver ethical domestic abuse and specialist support services so that women, children, men and everyone in–between are empowered to live increasingly positive, safer and healthier lives.”

Rewards and benefits
As well as having a fantastic culture, we go one step further than offering salary and holidays, we offer a fabulous range of rewards and benefits, so that each colleague feels valued.
You will have access to lots of extra health and financial incentives that make a real difference to you and your family.
We take training and ongoing development of our staff as an important part of supporting survivors to achieve positive outcomes, as well as supporting staff to develop their practice and progress.
All new employees and volunteers will attend an intensive induction programme, followed by specific role-based modular training ensuring they have a comprehensive understanding of domestic abuse and its impacts on adults and children, and the values needed to offer the high level of support required.
This provides a solid foundation to understand the impact of abuse on both adults, children and young people and the wider context of domestic abuse.
Our Calico Campus is available for all employees, at any stage of their career – develop your own values, recognise the values of others and develop your ability to offer and accept feedback – because working together, understanding our strengths and our own needs, means we can do more for people and truly make a real difference to their lives.
