Victims (Adults and Children) and those at risk of experiencing domestic abuse feel and are safe

Indicators of success

 

  • Timeliness of multi-agency information sharing
  • Access to pertinent and appropriate information, guidance and specialist support (Victims and their children)
  • Number and percentage of repeat victims
  • Impact of engagement with support services

 

 

A critical outcome for victims of domestic abuse is that they are able to adjust (recognising protective factors) and recover from harm. The first step in this process is to identify and assess effectively so that appropriate safety planning measures can be implemented so that they are and feel safe. This will require both emotional and practical support.

 

Strategic Action

 

  • Development of JDATT/MARAC/MASH teams with regard to resourcing and breadth of agency representation – with a longer term aim of exploring the opportunity to develop single services covering Greater Essex
  • Procuring and embedding a new Case / Information Management System within the JDATT/MARAC team
  • Expanding the JDATT assessment to include medium risk cases
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of the IDVA service and exploring opportunities to expand the service. Including the efficacy of interventions.
  • Improving practitioner awareness of the full range of support services through training and to ensure they can provide support effectively (systems and processes)
  • Communicating effectively the range of support services available.
