Domestic abuse

Our goal

We want to ensure victims are supported to be safe and to create change so that domestic abuse is no longer tolerated

Domestic abuse is often a hidden crime. But it is estimated that 10,000 people in Redbridge experience domestic abuse from an intimate partner every year. The impact on families can be devastating, traumatising those involved and negatively impacting their wellbeing for life.

We are determined to shine a light on this crime, offering greater support for victims to be safe and stopping abusers in their tracks. 


What we will do 

  • Streamline access to support – making it simpler for victims to get help and bringing together the various agencies to share information and reduce the burden on families
  • Create a five year training strategy to equip public, community and voluntary sector workers across the borough to spot the signs of domestic abuse. This will create spaces for victims to speak in confidence and begin their journey to safety
  • Develop and publish an action plan on improving victims’ confidence in police services
