Job Details

We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.

Last year alone, nearly 13,500 professionals received our training. Over 70,000 adults at risk of serious harm or murder and more than 85,000 children received support through dedicated multi-agency support designed by us and delivered with partners. In the last four years, over 2,000 perpetrators have been challenged and supported to change by interventions we created with partners, and that’s just the start.

Together we can end domestic abuse. Forever. For everyone.

Purpose of role:

Our influencing work is changing the national conversation about domestic abuse, with both national and locally based elected representatives and the officials and colleagues who work alongside them. Our Public Affairs and Policy Officer, reporting to the Head of Public Affairs and Policy will be crucial in helping us to develop our engagement with Parliamentarians, as well as deepen our policy influencing capacity to support our national roll-out of ground-breaking interventions to end domestic abuse and ensure support for the whole family to keep people safe sooner.
