Hampton Trust is a passionate, dynamic well-respected organisation committed to a world in which every family is free from violence, abuse, isolation, and exploitation. We strive to make our communities safe places for everyone to live and promote opportunities for children to thrive.
We are recruiting for a Domestic Abuse Drive Case Manager to join our Drive team. Drive is an intervention that works to protect victims of domestic abuse by challenging and changing the behaviour of high harm, high risk and serial perpetrators. The Hampton Trust has been appointed to deliver this intervention on behalf of Dorset Police in association with Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner.
As a case manager you will be allocated to areas in Dorset, although you will be expected to cover other areas due to staff leave for example.
Job Title: Drive Case Manager
Responsible to: Drive Service Manager
Base: Dorset – You will be required to travel extensively throughout Dorset
Hours: 37.5 hours
Salary: £27,000 to £28,000 per annum (dependent on experience)
Contract: Fixed until 31st March 2023 (subject to additional funding)
The Case Manager will strive to make contact and work on a one to one basis with perpetrators whose victims have been identified as high risk at MARAC/HRDA or harmful and serial perpetrators through police avenues to pro-actively secure engagement, influence attitudinal and behavioural change and link to complementary services. To do this, the Case Manager will work with existing agencies in each area to implement strategic individual intervention plans to address identified needs and risks and promote understanding of the impact of abusive behaviours. Throughout the intervention the Case Manager will work closely with the local IDVA service to review risk, feed into safety plans, and improve outcomes for all parties involved. The Case Manager will be responsible over the long term for delivering outcomes, working for typically 10 months to achieve behaviour change with each service user.
- Manage a caseload focusing on high harm, high risk and serial perpetrators to provide an assertive, medium to long term service, based on thorough assessment and individual support planning.
- Maintain a proactive response to service users, continuously providing positive options for behaviour change throughout the service user’s time in the Drive project.
- Use a combination of motivational work, relationship building and a broad range of therapeutic skills to engage service users to address their abusive behaviour
- Motivate and support service users to address the broad range of needs that may contribute to the risk that they pose to others or act as barrier for them in addressing that risk e.g. housing, substance use etc.
