Summary:

We currently have a vacancy for a Project Manager without our organisation to Co-ordinate and develop Big Lottery projects across Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.  The Project Manager’s role is to co-ordinate and develop the Big Lottery Projects and staff to ensure quality service deliver and maximum positive outcomes.

About Us:

Threshold DAS Ltd is an organisation dedicated to the elimination of domestic abuse and sexual violence.  We achieve this by running various projects that engage with specific groups within the community to provide support and empowerment and change behaviours.

Project Y is one of our Big Lottery projects that strives to achieve this.  The project’s aim is to increase the safety of young people by providing engaging holistic support, through a wide range of programmes.  The ‘Sparrow’ programme raises awareness in children and young people about the importance of healthy relationships by delivering seminars on areas such as social media, sexting and using the internet safely, sexual health and understanding sexual orientation, bullying, peer pressure, substance, drug and alcohol abuse, self-harming and suicide intervention, mental health and healthy eating.  This model’s initiative will be delivered in schools, youth clubs, colleges and third party sector organisations that support young people.  The ‘Purple Heart’ programme is an early intervention programme focusing on teenage use of violence in close relationships, whilst the ‘Making Waves’ programme addresses young people’s abusive behavior directed towards family members.  The ‘Open 4 All’ mediation programme works with the whole family, developed to aid young people and their families to reach mutually acceptable settlements to conflicts.  Lastly the ‘Only Health and Legal Professionals Aloud’ programme provides training for all health care professionals, judges, magistrates and legal professionals, to develop skills and a greater understanding of domestic abuse and its effects on children and young people so they are more easily able to identify abuse and refer to the most appropriate service.  Whether children and young people are victims or displaying problematic behaviours, we aim to provide them with an accredited programme of support, equipping them to make positive choices and giving them the tools they need to become adults free of domestic abuse.
