The Southend, Essex and Thurrock Domestic Abuse Board (SETDAB) Annual Report for 2019/2020 has been published this week, 31st August 2020.
The SETDAB report provides an update on the overall progress made against the delivery of the Essex Domestic Abuse Strategy for 2015/2020, reflecting on its successes, as well as highlighting the challenges that continue to be faced.
The 2015/2020 strategy set out a strategic vision to address domestic abuse through a multi-agency framework, common ethos and co-ordinated approach to innovate, drive change and address domestic abuse across Southend, Essex and Thurrock.
Chair of the SETDAB Boards, Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Jane Gardner said: ‘The Domestic Abuse Board, which I am privileged to be the Chair of, monitors the implementation of the Strategy and its underpinning action and delivery plans.
‘It also introduces our new Southend, Essex and Thurrock Domestic Abuse Strategy for 2020/2025, which builds on the firm foundations of our previous Strategy and just as importantly, reflects on a response to the experiences of many who have been affected by domestic abuse.
‘Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Abuse is a key strand of our extended Police and Crime Plan and our leadership of the Southend, Essex and Thurrock Domestic Abuse Board is significantly assisting us to deliver against our ambitions in this area.
‘But it is only by working with the representatives from agencies and organisations to join up and can we go a significant way to realise Southend, Essex and Thurrock’s vision of a County where everyone lives a life free from domestic abuse.’
