Pause Worcestershire Practitioners

Starting Salary for new Pause Practitioners: £31,009

Are you an ambitious, creative and influential leader or practitioner who is passionate about reducing the number of children being removed into care by supporting women to bring about change in their lives? Do you have direct experience of working with and affecting change in vulnerable individuals? Or are you an organised, innovative, administrative professional?

Pause is a charity seeking to prevent the damaging consequences of thousands more children being taken into care each year. We work with women who have experienced – or are at risk of – repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care.

The programme gives women the chance to pause and take control over their lives, breaking a destructive cycle that causes both them and their children deep trauma, as well as reducing huge costs to society and the taxpayer.

Our Pause Worcestershire service will go live on the 23 November 2020 and will be delivered by Ripplez CIC, working in collaboration with Worcestershire County Council and Bridges Outcomes Partnerships. What is more, we are very excited to announce that we have secured additional resources to increase the size of the new team, allowing us to recruit two more practitioners. This means that we will be able to reach more women.
