Additional documents:

Minutes:

Further to Minute No. 29 of the meeting held on 11 December 2017, the Partnership considered the report of the Service Manager, Localities, giving an update on Sefton’s Domestic and Sexual Abuse Strategy (2015-18) which had been approved by the SSCP on 25 June 2015. The Domestic Abuse Executive Group was responsible for taking forward the strategy action plan.

 

Sefton’s current strategy was due this year. It was proposed that a refreshed version was prepared by the Domestic Abuse Executive Group for agreement and sign off by the SSCP. This would be timely as the Merseyside Strategic Domestic Violence and Abuse Group was developing a domestic abuse action plan to ensure joint learning could be shared and joint priorities were developed in a coherent way across the different areas.

 

RESOLVED: That;

 

(1)

the report updating on Sefton’s Domestic and Sexual Abuse Strategy be noted; and

 

(2)

a refresh of Sefton’s Domestic and Sexual Abuse Strategy be agreed for the next three years and it be acknowledged that this would be produced to reflect local activity and the Merseyside priorities being developed by the Strategic Domestic Violence and Abuse Group.
