Job Description

Humberside and the North West of England. We have women’s centres in Leeds; Bradford; Hull; Sheffield; and HMP New Hall. Our centres offer safe, women-only spaces from which key workers and sessional staff provide needs assessment, action-planning, support and case management for women referred by a number of different agencies. Centres also provide a wide range of group programmes, sessional training, workshops and self-help groups. Women can access mentoring support from trained peer mentors (former customers) and are encouraged towards personal growth and development. Our centres host co-located staff from other agencies (e.g. probation, alcohol/drug treatment, housing etc.) and we work closely with statutory partners in criminal justice, health and social care.
In April 2014, TWP were commissioned by NHS England and NOMS to deliver an innovative and creative mentoring and advocacy service to support female offenders with personality disorder across the North of England and North Wales. Following 3 successful years, TWP are currently looking to recruit dynamic and experienced individuals to join our team in the following posts:
