Stopover provides Brighton & Hove’s only female-specific young person’s housing and support through trauma informed care.

- You will:
• be committed to fostering positive professional relationships with the young women;
• have an understanding of the effects of early trauma on young women, and
• be able to provide on-going support through the transition within the Stopover accommodation pathway.

- In return we offer:
• ongoing support and training;
