Independent Stalking Advocate
Changing Pathways (formerly Basildon Women’s Aid) is a domestic abuse charity that supports individuals and their children experiencing or fleeing domestic abuse across Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Rochford and Thurrock.
Changing Pathways continually seeks new ways to advocate for those who are currently or have previously experienced domestic abuse, inter-personal violence and stalking and harassment. We are involved in campaigning work and as an affiliated member of national Women’s Aid Federation of England, we work to the Women’s Aid National Quality Standards.
Changing Pathways is committed to breaking the cycle and impact of domestic abuse, and as such, we will only accept applications from candidates who share our vision and have a feminist perspective to eliminate the unequal positioning of those experiencing domestic abuse.
