Domestic abuse and violence work in Bolton

Working in partnership through our Domestic Abuse and Violence Partnership Board we have made a firm commitment to strengthen and increase our efforts to reduce the levels of domestic abuse, and ensure that the right help is available at the right time.

We want to enhance our efforts to raise awareness around domestic abuse and at the same time equip our front line professionals and providers of services with the necessary skills and training to offer the most effective level of support for our victims, their children and their families.

Domestic abuse and violence strategy and business plan

Bolton has had cross-agency Domestic Abuse and Violence strategies and business plans in place for many years, and in line with the Domestic Abuse Act 2021, we have recently developed the Domestic Abuse Support in Safe Accommodation Strategy for 2022-25.

Plans are underway for development of a business plan for this as well as developing the Whole Systems Domestic Abuse Strategy for Bolton.
