Domestic Abuse

Strategic Governance for Domestic Abuse is shared between Safer York Partnership and the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership. Domestic Abuse is a strategic priority within both Community Safety Strategies, working alongside the Safeguarding Adults and Childrens’ Boards to ensure that there is provision to support victims and perpetrators of Domestic Abuse across both City of York and the county of North Yorkshire.

Operational delivery is co-ordinated through the York and North Yorkshire Domestic Abuse Joint Co-ordinating Group (DAJCG). The DAJCG includes representation from key agencies and sectors who through this group deliver their commitment to continue to reduce the impact of domestic abuse and the effects on families across the sub-region.

The DAJCG is underpinned by two sub-groups. The Domestic Abuse Commissioning Group oversees the commissioning of domestic abuse services and management of performance relating to those contracts. The Domestic Abuse Operations Group oversees the multi-agency operations that support delivery of domestic abuse services eg MARAC and Making Safe, drafts the domestic abuse strategy and oversees the development and delivery of performance management reporting to the DAJCG.

The North Yorkshire and City of York Domestic Abuse Strategy for 2018/22 outlines the priorites on how North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership and Safer York Partnership  aims to tackle Domestic Abuse across the county and City of York.
