About the role

We know that there are 100,000 adults and 130,000 children at high-risk of murder or serious harm due to domestic abuse, yet less than 1% of perpetrators receive any specialist intervention to change or disrupt their behaviour. We cannot tackle domestic abuse without getting to the root of the problem: the perpetrator.

Drive is an innovative national pilot that aims to improvethe lives and safety of victims and children by holding high-risk perpetratorsto account. The pilot combines 1-2-1 case management of perpetrators with aco-ordinated multi-agency response and sustainable transformation of local andnational systems.

The pilot, led by Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance, hascompleted its first 18 months in three areas. We have learnt a great deal andthe initial results around victim and child safety are encouraging.

Although Subject to final confirmation of funding level, thisis a hugely exciting time for Drive.We are now embarking on a replicationof the pilot in five new areas.

As an Expert Advisor, you will provide domestic abuse andperpetrator expertise to the team. You will support the Programme Lead in theirwork and support operational teams in their delivery of interventions, ensuringhigh quality and safe practice. We have extensive insight into what works fromthe original pilot and this role will ensure that is fed into the replicationsites through training and expertise. This will involve ensuring local systemsand processes are in place to ensure best practice.

This role is vital in the success of the replication of theDrive pilot across the country, ensuring that survivors and children are at theheart of what we do and how we can make families safer, sooner.
