Stop Domestic Abuse has been commissioned by Hampshire County Council to deliver domestic abuse victim services across East and West Hampshire. This provides an opportunity to transform domestic abuse services within this region to maximise resources and improve outcomes for the people of Hampshire.

Key areas for Transformation are: A Whole Family Approach, Safe Spaces and High-Risk Provision.

As part of the Transformation, Stop Domestic Abuse would like to include the views of our partner agencies and stakeholders when shaping future domestic abuse services.

Safe Spaces – What might this look like? Safe spaces are not just about accommodation but can also include drop-ins providing support / advice at non-stigmatising / accessible venues. Safe spaces need to be available for a variety of victims and survivors of domestic abuse to include marginalised groups such as male / LGBTQ+ and larger families. Safe spaces could also be providing immediate access to emergency / crisis temporary accommodation until refuge accommodation becomes available (or is not suitable) or it is safe for the victim to return home.

Providing a service model that meets a wider need for victims could mean re-designating the use of an existing refuge and changing the traditional service being provided.

High Risk Provision – What might this look like? High risk clients require a variety of interventions and support from specialised domestic abuse professionals working together to reduce risk and improve outcomes. Robust, timely and agreed referral pathways need to be agreed between partner agencies to ensure the best possible outcome for high risk victims and their families. There is a continuing need to co-work with partner agencies to develop the High-Risk Domestic Abuse (HRDA) and MASH process. Identify areas of change to the support / on-going role provided by IDVA service.

Whole Family Approach – What might this look like? The term Whole family can have a variety of meanings and in this context could include viewing every family member as part of the bigger, complex picture. The service delivery model needs to have a holistic approach and recognise that many families want to remain together which is often in the best interests of children. Some family members may have additional complex needs such as substance misuse and will require short- and long-term risk assessments linked into recovery with support tailored around need.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to join us and contribute to the transformation of services, so we do hope that you will be able to attend.
