Cheshire East Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Partnership
Cheshire East Domestic Abuse Hub - call 0300 123 5101
The experiences of people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence continues to be the driver of services that we plan and deliver together. Our strategy is ambitious as we seek long term safety in homes, relationships, community and society.
No one agency can tackle this alone and our partnership is vital. Domestic abuse remains everyone’s business and it is only by working together that we can hope to develop our understanding, approach and services in such a way that we increase the safety and life chances of everyone.
We have 6 key workstreams in our three year strategy (PDF, 1MB) . The workstreams are:
- Focus on those who harm
- Cared for/care leavers
- Health settings
The updated strategy is well timed to address our new responsibilities as part of the Domestic Abuse Act which was signed into law in April 2021. We have received £647,000 from the government to support this new Act. The money will be spent helping victims and their children into safe accommodation using a Whole Housing Approach (PDF, 482KB), meaning that services are strengthened to spot the signs of abuse and support families earlier.
if you know someone who may be a victim of domestic abuse, you can gain help from our Domestic Abuse Hub or call 0300 123 5101 for assistance. You can also learn more about spotting the signs of someone who is being abused at the Open the Door website.
