Organisation: Independent Domestic Abuse Services
Role Description: We are delighted that you are considering becoming an IDAS Champion and hope that you will find it a rewarding and fulfilling experience. This role description sets out the details of the role and the tasks that you may undertake.
What is an IDAS Champion?
Often, people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence lack the knowledge and confidence of where to go to get help and support.
IDAS Champions are volunteers who seek out opportunities to raise awareness of domestic abuse and the services we provide so that more people can get support if they need it. Champions choose how much time to give and which activities to undertake.
Our Champions can help us with:
- raising awareness of domestic abuse among colleagues, friends, and networks;
- distributing IDAS posters and leaflets;
- attending events and giving talks.
IDAS Champions can have a huge impact upon societal attitudes and the accessibility of our services. There is also the potential to work with organisations and employers to develop exemplary policies and practices.
Anyone can become a Champion!
Champions may be professionals from health and social care, have roles within educational institutions, be employers, or can be individuals who simply want to make a difference and help people receive the support they need. IDAS encourages survivors of domestic abuse, including the friends or family members of people who have experienced domestic abuse or sexual violence, to become Champions.
Location: Volunteers work in their local area or alongside their existing role.
