Domestic Violence: SSB Women’s Group

Domestic violence reason for referral in 59/206 (29%) referrals to Outreach Team

Women’s Group (up to 8 women) ran from Jan 2001

 Took referrals from wider area including women with children over 4

Twelve week programme, but attendance not time limited

Sessions could be harrowing; many participants had been sexually abused

Recommendations

  • more focus on support for children

  • tackle issues of stigma attaching to domestic violence

  • stricter time limits and referral criteria; for Women’s Group

  • rotate staff for women’s groups to enhance ownership of group
