Key Duties:

  • Coordinating recruitment of volunteers
  • Training volunteers
  • Supervising the volunteers as they offer home visits to standard risk victims of domestic incidents
  • Working in partnership with PCSOs
  • Provide ongoing advice and guidance to volunteers including 1-2-1 and group supervisions
  • Assess the level of risk and need within the home and either refer on to Domestic Abuse specialist services or as appropriate, allocate referrals to the volunteers and brief them on background information and action required
