Working at eve

Eve is a dynamic and inspiring place to work.  Our staff support women and children who are victims of domestic abuse to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes necessary to become survivors. We provide information, advice, guidance and support for women and children who are survivors of domestic abuse through crisis refuge support, community based support and through our  intensive, holistic, rehabilitation and recovery programme called Restored.  Through our Evolve programme, we also work with perpetrators who use coercive and controlling behaviours, enabling them to change their values, beliefs and attitudes to prevent further domestic abuse from happening.
