  • Renew CEDAP Strategy 2016-19 to reflect the priorities, resources and aspirations of all key stakeholders in the local authority and align where possible with sub regional and national strategy and developments
  • Work with Service Users to ensure maximum participation in the development of strategy, action planning and improvement of services 
  • Embed the newly commissioned ‘Whole Family Service’ and ensure outcomes are delivered and shared 
  • Further develop the role of the Hub in relation to the ‘One Front Door’, ‘Complex Dependency’ and the new police ‘Integrated Domestic Abuse Team’ dealing directly with those causing harm
  • Improving the quality of practice in Children’s Services for assessing, analysing and responding and reviewing effectiveness where domestic abuse is an issue for the family and ensuring that specialist sector provision supports this work with effective services and participation in multi-agency arenas
  • Work with Adults Services to deliver our ‘whole family’ approach and ensure adults ‘at risk’ benefit from collaborative working across the domestic abuse and adult safeguarding sectors
  • Ensure the Quality and Outcomes Group can fulfil its function in providing an overview of ‘system’ performance including audit, scrutiny and challenge  Improve awareness of and increase referrals to specialist sexual violence provision, particularly for children and young people

To achieve these priorities CEDAP has a number of working groups:

  • A strategic board
  • Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferencing and Domestic Abuse Family Safety Unit Subgroup (high risk cases)
  • Children and Young People and Outcomes subgroup 

CEDAP joins Adults and Children’s Safeguarding Boards groups to work on Case Reviews, Communications and on Learning and Development
