Do you have a commitment to making a difference to women’s lives? Are you passionate about supporting women in a holistic, women centred, trauma-informed way to divert women away from the Criminal Justice System and to achieve long-term lasting change?
As part of the exciting Government initiative to tackle drug-related crime and reduce drug-related deaths, Nelson Trust are recruiting for a new female criminal justice recovery team who are passionate about supporting women.

You will also provide in-reach support to women who are currently in HMP Eastwood Park and planning to return to the Bristol area.

You will also be proactive in enhancing opportunities for women to access residential rehab placements on release from custody. We are looking for an experienced individual to provide 121 interventions and group-work, within the Bristol Community and in-reach to HMP Eastwood Park.
Due to the nature of the work carried out in our Women’s Centres this role is restricted to female applicants only in accordance with the provisions of the occupational requirement (Equality Act 2010, pursuant to Schedule 9, Part 1).
