Survivors of Abuse:

LWA welcomes applications from survivors of domestic and/or sexual abuse, with two exceptions; these are:

  1. For safeguarding reasons, LWA requires survivors to be out of the abusive relationship for a period of at least two years.
  2. Again, for safeguarding reasons, if a survivor received support from LWA, or from any other domestic abuse agency, we require this support ended at least one year ago.

LWA hopes survivors will accept that these exceptions have been made in order to protect survivors and current service users.

 

Working for a charity is a satisfying career and a great way to give back in your community as you would be working to help change people’s lives for the better.
