Manor Gardens Welfare Trust is a charity with an excellent history of supporting people to improve their health and wellbeing. We operate across London with our main base in Islington.

Our FGM Programme provides a range of services for communities, professionals and survivors of FGM across London. The basis of all our work is to empower and support communities to firmly reject the practice of Female Genital Mutilation, to help survivors to receive both physical and psychological support and to ensure that professionals understand both their legal duties towards those at risk of FGM and the physical and psychological effects of FGM on survivors.

We work in partnership with Hestia to deliver the FGM Prevention and Support Service as part of Newham’s Community Based Domestic and Sexual Violence (DSV) Services. As one of the FGM Caseworkers in the integrated DSV team you will be responsible for day to day delivery of the FGM Prevention Programme. The programme provides confidential one to one support and advocacy for women affected by FGM. Working closely with colleagues to deliver this service, you will have a particular focus on developing community engagement and participation.

As the FGM Caseworker, it is essential that you have excellent interpersonal skills, a compassionate and professional approach to the complicating factors that are experienced by survivors of FGM, and an understanding of the impact of FGM.

Commitment to working collaboratively, a practical working knowledge of IT and electronic databases, and the ability to maintain records of events, monitoring information and reporting requirements is part of this role. You will have experience of working with communities to engage and support them.
