Domestic Abuse Worker – Domestic Abuse Project

I have been working with W.A.I.T.S. for nearly ten years; so I have lots of experience in working with women effected by domestic violence issues.

I have completed a range of useful training courses. I am able to speak Mandarin, Cantonese and Hack, and I use these abilities to support women from the Chinese community; a massively under-represented group of women.

I support women from all backgrounds, however. I have developed the skills to be resourceful and flexible in my approach to my clients, and am experienced in giving advice and support.

I am a naturally empathetic and compassionate person, and use these traits to build good relationships with my clients. I am open-minded, supportive and, most important of all, have that desire to do something to make a difference to people’s life.

My role involves supporting women who have experienced domestic abuse/violence in the past, or who are currently experiencing domestic abuse/violence. I provide advocacy, guidance, advice and support with a range of issues. A particular focus of the role is to resettle women into safe properties, so that they can rebuild their lives free from the threat of violence or abuse.

I also signpost women to appropriate agencies, and support them through this process. Examples of the types of agencies I refer to include drug and alcohol teams, family support services, legal services and mental health agencies.
