Help for Professionals
Tackling domestic abuse requires a robust multi-agency response, without which we will be held back from supporting victims/survivors and effectively engaging perpetrators. Domestic abuse risk assessment and case management must not be undertaken in silo. Intelligence must be appropriately shared between statutory and non-statutory services for the purposes of harm prevention. To ensure we provide an effective community response to domestic abuse, we have a range of front line practitioners co-located in various settings around the county. This includes working alongside teams such as MASH, social care, mental health, substance misuse, police, probation and YOS. We also work in partnership with other third sector agencies both locally and nationally.
Working effectively with victims/survivors and perpetrators of domestic abuse is challenging. Multi-agency working provides opportunities to review cases through different lenses, share static (historic) risk factors and dynamic (changing) risk factors. It is very easy to refer a client into a service and to either close the case or assume risk is reduced. When dealing with domestic abuse this is a very unhelpful response.
The Hampton Trust has a multi-disciplinary team. We are grateful to the range of colleagues and agencies we work alongside with the shared aim of increasing safety to victims and holding perpetrators to account. We have and continue to co-locate into a range of front line services. This means that practitioners are welcomed to sit among teams in partner agencies. This provides opportunities to jointly manage risk and to also improve the quality of referrals. We actively promote and enjoy working alongside our colleagues in other settings.
