A Multi-Agency, Whole Family Approach to working with Children and Young people impacted by domestic abuse
12th August 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Consultation and engagement event.
This is not a training event. We welcome professionals and partners from North Yorkshire & York to share their views.
IDAS are undertaking an exciting project to develop an evidence based support service for children and young people impacted by domestic abuse. The service will take a Multi-Agency, Whole Family Approach.
We’d like to invite you to join us to find out more about the project and to contribute your views, opinions and experience to develop this innovative service.
Initially the service will be available in York, expanding to North Yorkshire following the first phase of development.
Your views are vital.
We will start the online event with a presentation about the project. We will then pose a series of questions so that you can contribute your views, opinions and experience to develop this innovative service.
The questions we will ask will be as follows. If it helps to jot down some notes ahead of the meeting that would be great. The more contributions the richer and more detailed the discussions will be. We are recording the event so that we can refer back to your vital contributions.
We would like to understand:
- What positive practice have you seen being delivered to support families impacted by domestic abuse? For example, where victims and their children have received joint therapy or counselling.
- Have you noticed any gaps in service for families impacted by domestic abuse? For example, mental health services unable to accept referrals for supporting children impacted by trauma.
- Have you any experiences of achieving positive outcomes for families through multi-agency working? For example, where the MARAC or MATAC have safeguarded families.
- What interventions have you seen work with children and young people impacted by domestic abuse? For example a family centre where the children could play while their non-abusive parent received support and then they received play therapy together.
- What agencies and organisations do you feel are vital to involve in this work?
- What training needs have you identified in your practice or in your service relating to supporting families impacted by domestic abuse?
