Receive calls, receive referrals from police, hospitals or self referrals , processes referrals, do risk assessment, safety plan, find refuge for women or contact the homelessness section and present them. Communicate with other agencies on behalf of the women or the team. I have learn that working together as a team or withi other organisation is the best way to reach victims's needs and communication is the key to a successful team.
Free lunch and given the nature of the job, one is allowed to take mini breaks
A bit Stressful
friendly staff, young passionate women work there who are committed to helping other women in need. Positive work culture, need more training in complex needs however apart from that they have expertise in the field of DV/SV.
passionate committed work force
low pay for permanent staff. no union as yet
A poor experience working with no structure, boundaries, or good management. Cramped working conditions, with no rooms to see clients. No induction, or Training offered at commencement of employment. Management tasks off loaded to staff to meet targets.
Extremely pressurized not enough support. alot of admin all the while adhering to stringent policies that place alot of stress on already stressed workers. Poor induction process
Excellent place to work. Very committed staff to the ethos of the organisation. Friendly staff team and approachable management. Given the nature of the job, it can be emotionally draining however, making a difference to the lives of women, girls and children who are survivors of domestic abuse makes it all worth it.
It can be very busy and quiet on some days, however you can never predict how the day will be. My collegues are great to work with and very helpful anytime you need help.The hardest part of job is when a client is not cooperating for you to help them.
