Pause Bristol Practice Lead – Permanent
Are you a creative and influential leader or practitioner who is passionate about improving the lives of vulnerable women and reducing the number of children being removed into care by supporting women to bring about change in their lives?
One25 is a leading charity in Bristol, set up to support women who street sex work to step away from a life on the streets. One25 hosts Pause Bristol, which is now an integral part of our service in its third year of operation. Pause is a national independent organisation seeking to prevent the damaging consequences of thousands more children being taken into care each year by working with women who have experienced, or are at risk of, repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care. The programme gives women the chance to pause and take control over their lives, breaking a destructive cycle that causes both them and their children deep trauma, as well as reducing huge costs to society and the taxpayer. Pause has set up programmes around the country and there is a profound need for Pause in Bristol.
