“Our objective is to help those who suffer in silence and reduce the impact on children and families”

Working with and through the Domestic Abuse Strategic Board to deliver an ambitious programme of transformation we will:

  • Improve our response to domestic abuse as set out in the Southend, Essex and Thurrock Domestic Abuse Joint Commissioning Strategy.
  • Support victims and their families affected by domestic abuse to feel safe, cope and recover through targeted help and jointly commissioned services.
  • Ensure children and young people affected by domestic abuse are informed about healthy relationships, and work with schools in the delivery of education and prevention programmes.
  • Train and develop front line professionals to recognise the signs and indicators of domestic abuse and to know how and where to go to for help.
  • Provide more safe ways for victims to report domestic abuse and access support.
  • Focus on prevention through the delivery of high impact awareness raising campaigns.
  • Support victims of domestic abuse who have also experienced sexual abuse, ensuring they receive the specialist help and advice they need.
  • Bring more perpetrators to justice by further roll out of body worn video cameras for frontline police officers.
  • Tackle offending behaviour through robust behaviour change programmes to break the cycle of domestic abuse.

So that domestic abuse victims are and feel safer and perpetrators are brought to justice.
