How does the Council work with other agencies?
The Council works closely with partner agencies such as the police, probation,health services and commissions specialist support services that together with other voluntary agencies provide a coordinated community response to domestic violence and abuse. You can talk to any of these services about your situation. You will be listened to and together we'll work to keep you and your children safe.
Other Council services such as St Leger Homes also work in partnership to respond to domestic abuse. The Council has a policy on domestic violence and abuse for its staff.
