Safer Ryedale aims to reduce the number of repeat cases of domestic abuse. We have already seen a reduction in cases, through the work of a Domestic Abuse Co-ordinator for Scarborough and Ryedale, in developing and implementing nationally recognised work with partner agencies in the statutory and voluntary sector.
One example "Making Safe" seeks to support victims of domestic abuse to remain in the family home, whilst challenging the behaviour of the offender.
We will also raise awareness and encourage education initiatives on the issues of domestic abuse, in the community and with harder to reach groups. This includes working with the national Dot Com Children's Foundation project.
We will also develop training packages with other agencies, to enable their staff to provide an effective response to domestic abuse.
