One25 is a Bristol charity for women moving from crisis and trauma towards independence in the community. It is a highly respected charity working with some of the most vulnerable women to help them to heal and thrive.
One25 services have been developed to meet women at their point of need, with love and practical support. We do this through our night outreach service which is a lifeline for nearly 135 women on Bristol’s streets. Our specialist caseworkers offer intensive one-to-one care in any area of need: from support in court to finding somewhere safe to live. Our new Health Hub provides vital access for women to health services, supported by healthcare professionals.
This is an exciting opportunity to join One25 as we recruit a new Mental Health Case Worker to join our specialist team. You will be supporting women who street sex work and who face significant barriers to accessing mental health support. This role is key to supporting and advocating for women to have access to mainstream mental health support, while providing trauma informed practical and emotional support to each woman.
We are looking for someone who is creative, values person-centred support and a team player who is passionate about tackling health inequalities that women who street sex work face.
We value and prioritise the wellbeing of our team and offer external supervision, reflective practice, formulation and wellbeing leave to our frontline teams.
