Volunteer Needed: Assistant to Sojourner Resettlement Worker


Eaves is a charity which provides high quality services to women who have experienced violence through various support, accommodation and research projects.  They need a volunteer to assist the Sojoruner Resettlement Worker with her duties.  The Sojourner Resettlement worker prepares Sojourner funded women to live independently in the UK after they have been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and leave our service. She also advocates for them with local authority housing departments and the Job Centre when they make application for benefits and present themselves as homeless in need of housing. She takes over support of women when they have been granted ILR or when their funding is coming to an end but no decision has been made.  In these circumstances she will seek ongoing financial assistance from other sources such as Social Services.  The volunteer assistant will help with all these aspects of the role, as well as other duties when needed and appropriate. 
 
Eaves welcomes all applicants, although prefers those with experience of working with women who have been victims of domestic violence.  If you would like to volunteer or know of anyone who might be interested please contact alice@handsonlondon.org.uk as soon as possible.
