Norwich Connect is a standard to medium risk holistic, whole family support service for individuals, couples and families affected by domestic abuse regardless of gender, sexuality, age, or disability, including victims, perpetrators and children/young people.
We believe that every survivor of domestic abuse, and their family, deserves the right response, at the right time, to make them safe, sooner.
Over the next three years, SafeLives are working with partners from the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership to pilot a Beacon site of best practice in Norfolk for victims of domestic abuse. Norwich Connect, which is delivered by Spurgeons, is one element of this and aims to improve the response for individuals, couples or families (with or without children) experiencing Domestic Abuse.
Our model includes:
- A multi-skilled team delivering direct services to individuals, children and families.
- Programmes that provide:
o Whole family work
o Peer mentoring
o Survivor groups: domestic abuse awareness, recovery and skills development
o 1-1 and group work with perpetrators who have been assessed as motivated to change
- A coordinated, multi-agency approach, working with relevant services.
- Training other agencies.
- Online support and therapeutic approaches.
- Survivor-led service review and improvement
