Domestic Abuse Plan and Updates

Domestic Abuse Plan 2020-2023

The Domestic Abuse Strategy 2020-2023 was approved by Portsmouth’s Health and Wellbeing Board in January 2020.

Delivery of the agreed actions in the strategy is closely co-ordinated with work to deliver Hampshire Constabulary’s new domestic abuse strategy as well as Portsmouth’s Violent Crime Unit Response Strategy and the Children’s Trust Plan 2020-2023.

Progress is regularly monitored by the multi-agency Domestic Abuse Steering Group chaired by the Deputy Director for Children’s Social Care.

The newly-established Domestic Abuse Practitioner’s Group meets twice a year to provide feedback on frontline work and acts as a consultation group for the development of local good practice.
