PACT currently has two communities’ projects; Alana House and Bounce Back 4 Kids (BB4K).
Alana House is an innovative women’s community project that uses a holistic approach to support vulnerable and disadvantaged women with complex needs, including those at risk of offending. Alana House provides a safe, women only space to over 70 women every month, with the aim of empowering women to access the support they need and improve the outcomes for them, their families and the wider community.
Bounce Back 4 Kids is a support programme for children and families affected by domestic abuse. The BB4K programme has been developed by PACT to use therapeutic techniques to provide support to children aged between five and 12 years old and their families, once the perpetrator is no longer living in the family home.
The Communities Support Worker will work across both the Alana House and BB4K projects at various sites in Berkshire, managing a case load of women in Reading and West Berkshire and will be involved in regular outcomes-focussed person-centred one to one support work. They can expect to create support plans, follow-up meetings, make referrals to Alana House partners and other local agencies, assist with (with the opportunity to lead) group work and facilitate drop-ins. There will also be opportunities for the Communities Support Worker to assist with co-facilitating PACT’s BB4K programme. The objective of the role is to enable service users to make positive changes in their lives and reduce chaotic lifestyles.
This a varied and challenging role in an exciting project with a supportive team.
