The Emma Project and Daria House are specialist services providing refuge and support services to women who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual violence, including women who have been sexually exploited through prostitution and who also use substances problematically. The service is currently funded until 31st March 2021 with a possibility of further extension.

We are seeking to recruit to the following post:

Job Title: Specialist Support Worker
Job Ref: nia 010
Hours: 17.5hrs/wk based in Haringey.
