We want to break the silence on domestic violence – so we consistently publicise the fact that the emphasis of our work is around prevention – the earlier – the better. This will mean that as soon as we get a referral (from whatever source – including from a family itself), we will call together the agencies who need to be involved, to put together a ‘package’ for the whole family – always ensuring their safety. It will be initially for six weeks then reviewed and a longer term plan put together. We provide outreach support that ensures ‘coordination’ of effort and sustainability.
Early Intervention Programme is a module that was originally designed in New Zealand to work with the whole family; providing a service for couples who wish to stay together or separate amicably.
We work with the whole family through this period by providing one to one work for the victim, their partner and any children involved.
