Join Spurgeons domestic abuse team in Norwich

Spurgeons is offering the opportunity for two people to join its growing Norwich-based team responding to domestic abuse  as a Behaviour Change Practitioner and a Community Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (IDVA).

Spurgeons is one of the UK's leading children's charities, firmly supported by Christian beliefs and values, helping to support disadvantaged children and their families through delivering projects to support children, young people, their families and communities to find long-lasting solutions to the challenges they face.
We are passionate about the work we do and need equally committed members on our team to help us achieve those goals. 

Every survivor of domestic abuse, and their family, deserves the right response at the right time, to make them safe, sooner. That's why we're delivering new interventions and ways of working that fill the gaps in the response to domestic abuse, on behalf of SafeLives and the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership.
