This is a new fixed-term role to help deliver a Peer Support Project for women with experience of criminal justice system in Greater Manchester. Women ex-offenders often have quite specific needs and priorities, and peer support can provide help, guidance as well as positive role models. As such, this post is open to women only as it requires an understanding of the issues and challenges our female ex-offenders face and this may include living situations, homelessness, abuse, addiction, probationary matters and more. 

With support from the VPM for ex-offenders in Greater Manchester, the post-holder will identify suitable candidates to act as peer mentors, and ensure that they receive appropriate training and support to enable them to be able to support other women with experience of the criminal justice system.

Therefore, attention to detail and the ability to work efficiently in an organized manner are important.

Ability to maintain confidentiality and professional boundaries, as well as the skills to support others to do so, will be a key element of the role.

Key responsibilities:

- Working with the VPM for ex-offenders in Manchester, identify women with lived experience of the criminal justice system who would be suitable peer mentors. Ensure they receive training to enable them to be effective in their role and ensure all Safeguarding and confidentiality requirements (both internal and external) are adhered to.

- Working with the VPM for ex-offenders in Manchester, identify women with lived experience of the criminal justice system who could benefit from the support of a peer mentor, either in a small group scenario or on a 1-1 basis.

- Promote the project to local stakeholders and through networks as necessary.

- Facilitate the relationship between peer mentors and those receiving support, ensuring that all Safeguarding requirements are followed, that client confidentiality is respected and that professional boundaries are also adhered to.

- Ensure that project records are kept up to date, including maintaining accurate client records using designated reporting forms and/or the charity’s case management system; recording participant numbers and details for funders; record outcomes data to enable accurate reporting to funders.

- Ensure that progress is measured regularly using the charity’s assessment tools.
Support project reporting requirements by ensuring timely provision of accurate and up to date information to the central team.

Support Worker (Project Manager) - Wounded, Injured and Sick Service Personnel and Veterans – Wiltshire/Hants

Step Together’s Rehabilitation through Volunteering project provides in-depth support to wounded, injured and sick (WIS) veterans and service personnel across England to engage in community volunteering as part of their rehabilitation and recovery process. 

We are seeking a Project Manager to work directly with WIS clients across Wiltshire, Hampshire and neighbouring areas, working alongside Personnel Recovery staff and representatives from veterans’ organisations engaged in the WIS recovery programmes. Through one-to-one support, group presentations, workshops, visits and follow-up mentoring, the post-holder will encourage and support WIS clients into volunteering placements, with the aim of enhancing confidence and personal skills and supporting a successful transition to civilian life.

This position requires persistence, self-motivation, and determination, and would be very well suited to someone with direct military (or military family) experience at a management level. The ability to relate to veterans and soldiers of all genders and all ages, and their families, with a specific focus on supporting those who have been wounded, injured or sick, is crucial. Applicants should be comfortable with remote working and have a valid driving licence.

This is a 12-month fixed term contract, permanent subject to funding.

Hours: 21 hours per week (to be worked over 3 to 5 days with some flexibility)
