Specialist and Children’s Domestic Abuse Support Service

September 22, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Calderdale Council and partners are working towards designing a specification for a Domestic Abuse Support Service. At the Domestic Abuse Discovery Day on 22nd July they shared ideas about a future service.

They agreed to consult further on more detailed aspects of the service. Two smaller and more focused consultation events are planned as follows:

  • Specialist Domestic Abuse Support Service – 22nd September 9.30am-11.30am
  • Childrens Domestic Abuse Support Service – 24th September 9.30am-11.30am

Both events will be at the Orangebox, Halifax. Places are limited to 25 per session.

Please contact Naomi.whenham@calderdale.gov.uk to confirm attendance, stating who from your service will attend and which session (it may be both).

They will pick up on suggestions raised at the Discovery Day such as:

  • Waiting times for support services
  • Key workers to help navigate the system
  • Out of hours service
  • Locality working
  • Male victims/victims of family violence

They also require feedback on:

  • The type of contract they need to get the best outcomes from a future service
  • Ideas about what proportion of the available funding should be used for themes, such as prevention work and specialist support work with victims.
