Applicants must have a strong commitment to the aims of the project, i.e. to tackle the factors that lead to offending behaviour and support choices that improve women’s life chances

The successful applicant must have experience of working with people with multiple and complex needs and experience of providing structured individual support and a sound awareness of the issues affecting women with multiple and complex needs.
