Splitz' Devon service was invited to attend an awareness raising event at the mosque in Exeter on the 8th March for International Women's Day and Fair Trade Fortnight. The Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVA) attending met many people at their stand, which formed part of the exhibition.
Following the success of the Talk Toolkit for teenagers, Devon’s Safeguarding Team, led by Team Leader Emma Stephens, has developed a new toolkit for primary aged children. The toolkit, which has been developed in consultation with seven local schools, will provide professionals working with primary age children with a resource to help them support those who have been affected by domestic abuse.
Splitz Devon Domestic Abuse Support Service (DDASS) has gained recognition for the quality of its management and service delivery to victims of domestic abuse, after being awarded the nationally recognised Leading Light accreditation.
Devon Domestic Abuse Support Service (DDASS) is delighted that Exeter Council has chosen to support our Young People Safeguarding Team in their work around creating ‘Safe and Sound’ - a toolkit for primary age children who experience the impact of domestic abuse.
