Peer researcher opportunity: domestic abuse and substance use

4 Aug 2017

AVA (Against Violence and Abuse) and Agenda  are recruiting up to 15 women (aged 18 and above) to be volunteer peer researchers on a ground-breaking national project which will improve services for women affected by abuse and multiple disadvantage.
 
Being a peer researcher will involve talking and listening to women about their experiences of domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill health. The researchers will work with AVA to co-produce a report highlighting women’s experiences and voicing their recommendations for change. 
 
You can help ensure that women’s voices are at the heart of recommendations for making change on a national level.
 
Any women with experience of domestic and/or sexual violence, mental ill health or problematic substance use can apply - you do not need to have previous experience in this area.  The researchers will receive full training and support from AVA and Revolving Doors who specialise in peer research.  
 
Read more about the role.
 
The deadline is Monday August 14, 17:00.  If you have any questions please email or call Lucy Allwright - lucy.allwright@avaproject.org.uk / 020 3752 5535.
