Improving Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and interventions for victims of domestic abuse

Improving Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and interventions for victims of domestic abuse

Friday, November 30, 2018

ISBN: 9781787813915

A consultation to improve multi-agency risk assessment centres for victims of domestic abuse in Scotland.

Executive Summary

A multi-agency risk assessment is a regular, local meeting where information about domestic abuse victims at risk of the most serious levels of harm (including murder) is shared between representatives from a range of local agencies to inform a coordinated action plan to increase the safety of the victim and their children.

We are consulting to ask the views of those who are directly involved in protecting people at high risk of violence and who are working in partnership with others to ensure that interventions are early and effective.
