Wiltshire’s Community Safety Partnership supported and agreed to re-commission a specialist high risk service for people experiencing DVA and at risk of further harm. Funding was committed by Wiltshire Council’s Public Health and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), and supports the delivery of the DA strategy and the Police and Crime Plan.
From 1 October 2015 this service will be provided by Splitz Support Service.
The specialist high risk DVA service will provide an easy to access, high quality service offering a range of crisis-interventions, including support to access alternative accommodation, safety planning, healthcare services, working to reduce immediate risk and supporting individuals to stay safe. The service will support anyone aged 16yrs or above who is at high risk of harm from DVA irrespective of disability, ethnicity, sexuality or gender.
