The Lucy Faithfull Foundation (LFF) is dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse. We’re bold, we’re pioneering, we’re growing, and we want your help.

Since 1992 we’ve kept children safe by working with people who have harmed them or who might do so, to help them stop. We work with adults worried about their own sexual thoughts, feelings or behaviour towards children; adults worried about another adult or young person; young people themselves; and with protective adults and professionals.

About the role

We are recruiting a skilled and experienced professional practitioner to join our multi-disciplinary, innovative team. You will carry out assessments and interventions for local authorities in cases where sexual abuse is known or suspected, provide advice to our Stop It Now helpline and deliver training to other professionals as well as contributing to wider service developments within the charity.

Our practitioners use their experience and expert knowledge in working with individuals who have been convicted or accused of sexual abuse toward children and protective adults where there have been concerns about child sexual abuse. You will be able to demonstrate confidence in translating the charity’s mission into direct child protection practice and equipping other professionals in tackling child sexual abuse through training and consultancy.

This is a highly rewarding role within a friendly, supportive and hardworking team which is committed to keeping children safe from sexual harm.

What you’ll get from us

We offer a NEST pension, 25 days annual leave rising to 30 days (plus statutory bank holidays) after 5 years’ service, up to 5 days learning and development per year, an employee assistance programme and the option of Benenden medical cover.

Circles of support and accountability volunteers

West Midlands

Circles of Support and Accountability aim to rehabilitate people who have committed sexual offences against children, and help them to not offend again.

Each circle includes 4 to 6 trained volunteers from the local community who help to support one person who has sexually offended. The volunteers commit to meeting with the core member for 12 to 18 months. 

The circle provides practical skills and support to the Core Member according to their needs, which might include social skills, finding work or hobbies, or looking for suitable accommodation. They will also receive disclosure about the Core Members offending behaviour, and support them to recognise unhelpful thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour which might link to their risk of offending, and encourage them to develop more healthy strategies.  

The Core Member will be subject to probation oversight within the criminal justice system. Volunteers are supported by a professional Circle Coordinator, who liaises with other key professionals working with the Core Member, including police and probation.  

About you

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are committed to preventing sexual abuse to form circles in the West Midlands area.  Circles reflect the communities they work in and we welcome volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds.  

How to apply
