Gender Based Violence is a key issue for many women with learning disabilities in Scotland. At the Scottish Commission for Learning Disabilities (SCLD) we are committed to tackling GBV against women with learning disabilities. As part of this commitment we are recruiting a Gender Based Violence Project Adviser to support our programme of work aimed at tackling GBV against women with learning disabilities in Scotland.
About the role
This role is a key position in the SCLD team leading on our 2 years funded project on improving support services for women with learning disabilities who have experienced Gender Based Violence (GBV). The project is funded as part of Equally Safe Scotland and is designed to help deliver the outcomes of this strategy. There is potential for third-year funding of the project based on delivery in the first two years.
The post holder will support the Human Rights Programme Lead to ensure SCLD’s work protects the rights of women with learning disabilities who have experienced GBV.
A central goal of the post is to ensure that SCLD is a key contributor to the external discourse in Scotland regarding GBV and learning disability.
The post-holder will support the development of information and communications regarding GBV across a wide range of platforms including SCLD’s website.
The post holder will ensure that the organisation’s key messages about GBV and related issues reach the intended internal and external audiences and will work inclusively with people who have a learning disability and other disabled people.
