Specialist Female Support (Julian House)
A Specialist Female Casework Coordinator will be based within our Assertive Homelessness Outreach Team in Bath and partly seconded to Footprints; a service delivered by BANES’s Children’s Social Care Team, to support women who have had children removed from their care.
A Training & Peer Support Facilitator will coordinate and deliver a programme of training opportunities across the South West for client-facing staff, to share our expertise and learning in supporting homeless/at risk women who have had children removed. We will be organising a peer support group for clients to develop self-sustaining support networks and feedback on the project.
Roanne Wootten, Operations Director for Julian House, said: “We are delighted to be working with Children’s Social Care in B&NES on this project. Footprints is a small and well-established team supporting parents towards a positive future. The new roles are a great example of statutory and voluntary sectors coming together to share resource and expertise – we are excited by this developing work; which will have long lasting impact, supporting vulnerable women who are homeless and at risk.”
