The MIA Service is currently undergoing a transition to a new model.  We are developing an integrated Specialist Domestic Abuse Court Advocacy and Support Service focused on reducing risk and improving the safety and wellbeing of victims of domestic abuse in Dundee, which aims to ensure that all victims; women, children, and men, are safe, informed and supported throughout their involvement with the criminal justice system.  Applicants should have a knowledge of domestic abuse and be committed to working with those who experience it, be enthusiastic, motivated, have excellent communication skills and be able to work collaboratively in a multi agency environment, evidencing a respectful and inclusive approach.  You will be creative, innovative, adaptable, dynamic and able to deliver an empathic and robust service.  The use of a non-judgemental approach is essential, and you should be able to evidence professional curiosity.  This is an exciting new service model which is being funded by Scottish Government for 1 year initially, with a possibility of extension from the newly announced victims fund until April 2025.
