The Community Connector programme employs an asset-based community development (ABCD) approach which focuses on strengths existing within communities and individuals and offers support to survivors of DVA to develop solutions to issues they identify in their own communities. 

Duties include processing applicants, maintaining records of participants and the Community Connector mailing list, co-facilitation of training, organising meet-ups and supporting the evaluation of the scheme.

  • At all times you will be expected to protect the safety and security of services, service users, staff, volunteers and buildings, and the confidentiality of records and other information.
  • Acknowledge and actively support the rights of women, children and young people who have experienced domestic violence.


  • An opportunity to develop your strengths and skills (e.g. communication, teamwork, time management, positive attitude, initiative), build confidence and feel valued.
  • You will gain transferable professional skills and work experience that provides you with additional sources for positive work references.
