We have a working partnership with Depaul UK through which we provide support to women in prison and upon release and resettlement.

In addition we work closely with many local and pan-london agencies in order to provide a one-stop-shop so women can get all (or as much as possible) of the help they need in one location.

These agencies include:

  • Camden Safety Net (domestic violence service)
  • Camden Safer Streets Team (Street Outreach)
  • CLASH (sexual health service)
  • Icis drug support service

Job vacancy

Advocacy and Support Team worker
£27,000pa

women@thewell is a women-only drop-in centre in Kings Cross dedicated to supporting women whose lives are affected by or at risk of being affected by prostitution. Most women who use our services have multiple and complex needs including:
• problematic drug and alcohol abuse
• mental health difficulties
• rough sleeping
• trafficking

This is an exciting time of growth for women@thewell. We are seeking a new member for our Advocacy and Support Team.
You will have experience of working with vulnerable women with complex needs, have excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills and be passionate about supporting people to exit sexual exploitation. An understanding of relevant policy frameworks would be an advantage, as would a professional qualification in social work or a related field, though these are not essential. The successful candidate will have a can do attitude and we will provide training and development as needed.
