Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance are working together to develop a sustainable, national response to perpetrators of domestic abuse that knits together local services, complementing and enhancing existing interventions. The primary aim of this work is to reduce the number of child and adult victims of domestic abuse by developing a whole system response that drives service users to change their behaviour.
Pilot projects are being developed in three areas: West Sussex, South Wales and Essex. The pilots have been commissioned over a 3 year period since 2016 and the costs are met by a combination of local funding and philanthropic grants.
The Case Manager will strive to make safe contact and work on a one to one basis with perpetrators whose victims have been identified as high risk at MARAC to pro-actively secure engagement, influence attitudinal and behavioural change and link to complementary services. To do this, the Case Manager will work with existing agencies in each pilot site to design a co-ordinated, strategic individual intervention plan to address identified needs and risks and promote understanding of the impact of abusive behaviours. Multiagency work will also be carried out to achieve disruption, where not assessed as safe to make contact. Throughout the intervention the Case Manager will work closely with the IDVA service to review risk, develop safety plans and improve outcomes for all parties involved.
