The Strategic Domestic Abuse Board and the East Riding Community Safety Partnership formally approved the East Riding Domestic Abuse Strategy 2020 – 2023 in October 2020.

Domestic abuse is a complex problem which affects all in society. A significant criminal, social and health problem which has a major impact on children and young people, adults, families and communities,  

Domestic abuse is a challenge for many services and organisations requiring complex coordination across a multifaceted partnership landscape.

Domestic Abuse Awareness Campaign

Lat year the office of the PCC ran a DA Awareness campaign across Christmas and New Year

The campaign was been developed in consultation with the four Local Authority Domestic Abuse leads across Humberside and the commissioned service called 'The Blue Door' has helped to develop images and messages for the campaign. Part of the campaign has involved working with a Domestic Abuse survivor who has shared her story and the positive experience of the support she received from both the police and Domestic Abuse services.

The campaign elements are:-  “You are not alone” web pages with local information at www.youarenotalone.online

A5 leaflets were delivered door to door in high DA postcode areas (Identified from our summer campaign from data supplied by Humberside Police). Click here for leaflet.

A YouTube video with our survivors’ story, which will be attached to some social media posts. View the video at https://youtu.be/KsRnzCnU0E
