Post: CARA Facilitator
Responsible to: Regional CARA Lead
Base Location: West Midlands (subject to preferred location)
Salary: £20.00 per hour
Hours: Saturday 9am – 4pm (booked subject to individual availability)

If you are looking for a new challenge and want to be part of delivering an innovative response to tackling domestic abuse, then this could be the role for you. This is an exciting opportunity to join The Hampton Trust and take a key role in setting up and delivering Project CARA (caution and relationship abuse) across the West Midlands. CARA was originally developed as a partnership between The Hampton Trust, Cambridge University and Hampshire Constabulary. It targets standard risk domestic abuse offenders by offering two domestic abuse awareness raising workshops as part of a conditional caution issued by the police. CARA has expanded to other areas of the UK and we are working in partnership with West Midlands Police to deliver CARA workshops across the West Midlands. 2000 participants have engaged in the workshops and refer to CARA as ‘life changing’.

We are not looking for a specific skill base, rather an aptitude and ability to engage individuals from a range of backgrounds. We are looking for skilled practitioners who have experience in delivering group work, a knowledge of domestic abuse issues and an aptitude and ability to engage individuals from a range of backgrounds.

Full training will be given, providing opportunities to develop and hone skills in motivational interviewing and to see the powerful impact of group work. The Hampton Trust has a strong ethos of supporting staff to develop skills and competences ‘on the job.

Workshops are delivered on a Saturday. You will be required to be available
9am-4pm on the days you are booked to deliver CARA. Sites include Birmingham City Centre, Dudley, West Bromwich, and Coventry. There is no requirement to be available each week, instead we are looking to recruit a pool of CARA facilitators and you will be scheduled to deliver subject to your availability.

For an informal discussion, please contact Caroline Freeman on 07399 662225 or The Hampton Trust office on 02380 001061.
