The East Riding Domestic Abuse Strategy 2020-2023 was published in June 2020 following an in depth partnership Strategic Review of Domestic Abuse across all services and agencies responding to domestic abuse in the East Riding.
The East Riding Strategic Domestic Abuse Board, consisting of the Local Authority, Humberside Police, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, East Riding of Yorkshire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, and the National Probation Service; approved the Strategy and its plans, shared goals, and strategic objectives for preventing and responding to domestic abuse in the East Riding.
The Strategy originally went out for consultation between November 2019 and February 2020 which informed the development of the final Strategy.
This second consultation focuses on the update in Year 2 of this Strategy period, and the amendments made to reflect the new duties as a result of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021.
This includes an additional chapter focusing on how the Local Authority will deliver support to victims and their children in safe accommodation.
