Bolton at Home is a member of Bolton Domestic Abuse Partnership.
We recognise that domestic abuse can often be very complex and can affect individuals and families in different ways. We ensure that we obtain advice and work closely with specialist agencies to ensure the support provided meets the needs of the people who live in our properties.
Professionals we work with include: adult and children’s services, mental health services, schools, youth services, youth offending teams, probation, and drug/alcohol agencies.
We will ensure that we keep all people we work with on a case informed at all stages of the investigation and we're always a phone call away for any questions or doubts. In all cases the officers pay the victims a visit and offer the 1-2-1 support and address any underlying issues even advice on money issues and debts. Our officers are fully aware of the need for sensitivity, confidentiality and where requested, anonymity and we also have a victim and witness support package which aims to offer support and advice on each case.
Referrals can be emailed to: DavService@boltonathome.org.uk or call Dav admin on 01204 329636.
