Women and Girls Network (WGN) is a specialist organisation leading in developing and delivering innovative and effective services for women and girls who have experienced all forms of gender-based violence. Our aim is to ensure proactive development of specialist services that meet the needs of all the women and girls who access them.
We seek practitioners for our outstanding therapeutic services across London, who will thrive in a multi-cultural feminist environment.
We offer a unique development opportunity for Honorary Counsellors in this specialist field. As well as the opportunity to make a difference to survivor's lives, Honorary Counsellors gain valuable experience within London's violence against women and girls' sector and join a team of committed and passionate women supporting survivors and working hard to end gender-based violence. We provide regular one to one and group supervision, access to accredited training courses and a continuous professional development programme.
