Address the safety of victims at high risk of harm from intimate partners, ex-partners or family members to secure their safety and the safety of their children.
Serve as a victim’s primary point of contact by working with their clients from the point of crisis to assess the level of risk, discuss the range of suitable options and develop safety plans.
Be pro-active in implementing the plans, including actions from MARAC, which address immediate safety and enable victims to protect themselves and their children, as well as longer-term solutions, using sanctions and services via criminal and civil courts, housing options and other organisations.
Provide short- to medium-term support to promote long-term safety.
Work as part of an IDVA service and within a multi-agency framework, keeping the client’s perspective and safety is at the centre of proceedings.
By engaging with high-risk clients, achieve clear and measurable improvements in safety, including a reduction in the escalation and severity of abuse and a reduction or cessation in repeat incidents of abuse.
