6 Safety in Numbers

7 What are the key features of IDVAs work? Impact of IDVAs work on safety and well- being? Who do IDVAs work with? Safety in Numbers 3 Big Questions

8 Focus on Data and Outcomes- ‘Safety in Numbers’ –Largest study ever done in UK – 2500 women, 3600 children, 7 sites –Showed that on average women had suffered 5.5 years of abuse before accessing help –Most women suffered all forms of abuse- physical (84%), sexual (23%), controlling behaviour (86%) and stalking/harassment (48%) –Multiple problems including alcohol misuse by perpetrator (54%), financial problems (45%), drug misuse (39%) and mental health problems (28%). Half of perpetrators had a criminal record –Direct risks to children over child contact (41%), threats to harm (27%), and threats to kill child (11%) –Two thirds reported abuse ceased after support from IDVA

13 Messages from Munro “We will explore further how to disseminate local good practice of closer working between children’s services and police public protection units as well as other public protection arrangements such as MARACs.” “The Government accepts the contribution of all relevant agencies to the protection of children.” “Critically, inspection must examine the effectiveness of help provided at all stages including initial contact, early help, protection and longer term help.” “Data should be used where questions should be asked.” “The Government should place a duty on local authorities and statutory partners to secure the sufficient provision of local early help services for children, young people and families.”

14 Messages from Munro 2 “Professional practice should drive and characterise the development and implementation of local agreements and processes about helping families early and there should be explicit and clear alignment with arrangements to make referrals to children’s social care.” “The challenge role of LSCBs should be strengthened, making clear that there should be robust and regular monitoring of the effectiveness of help and protective services and the extent of multi-agency commitment and participation in the provision of this help.”
