If you are a professional who needs to know more about domestic abuse, this is the page for you.
This page contains the latest versions of the Doncaster domestic abuse strategy and other local and national policies and protocols to support professionals in tackling domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is when a person hurts, controls, threatens or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is a member of their family. The abuse doesn’t always end when the relationship ends. As a young person you might see or hear abuse in your household, you might be hurt either physically or emotionally as part of the abuse between adults, and you might experience abuse from your own boyfriend or girlfriend or other family member.
You may be worried that you are being abusive towards your partner, ex-partner or a family member or not treating them with respect. This page gives you more information about how to address your behaviour.
This page gives you details of local, regional and national initiatives relating to domestic abuse. If you have a domestic abuse service that you would like to promote on this page please contact email@example.com
Domestic abuse can continue to impact on our lives for many years after the abuse has ended. Individual and group support is now available for survivors. We have a laugh, we have a cry and we are there for each other. Together we can also make a change and help other people that are going through what we have. We can influence policy makers to improve services and make a difference.
The Doncaster Domestic Abuse Protocol is a professional's guide to how to respond to victims, survivors and families experiencing domestic abuse and to the people who are causing the harm. Exerts from the protocol are included on this webpage for ease of access.
Domestic abuse, or domestic violence, includes a range of abusive behaviour (either physical, sexual, financial, psychological or emotional) between people 16 years or older, who are or were intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender.
Support for victims of domestic abuse, children and young people, people who are abusive and information to help those you are worried about.
