Domestic abuse

Children's Domestic Abuse Sub-group

Domestic Violence is governed by the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) and driven forward by the Tackling Domestic Abuse Board (TDAB). 

We currently have a Children's Domestic Abuse (CDA) sub-group and the chair reports to the TDAB. The CDA Chair also reports every six months directly to the SSCP. The SSCP will continue to support the Children's Domestic Abuse subgroup and will undertake a scrutiny and challenge role in relation to domestic abuse activity. 

For more information please see the TDAB Terms of Reference.
