Domestic abuse staff guidance

This staff guidance will give you all the information and referral tools you need to assist a person when dealing with sexual or domestic violence.

Key partners from the Derbyshire and Derby City Domestic abuse and Sexual Violence Coordination Group have produced this multi-agency staff toolkit in relation to domestic abuse and sexual violence.

The aim of the toolkit is to provide a quick reference guide for practitioners from any agency when dealing with cases of domestic abuse and sexual violence. The toolkit provides information about what domestic abuse and sexual violence is, how it can affect different groups of people (including females, males, children, BME communities, LGBT communities and disabled people) and what support is available across Derbyshire.

This section has the guidance that you will need when dealing with a problem.

Guidance is split in the following ways:

  • adults
  • children
  • black and minority ethnic (BME)
  • male Victims
  • lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)
  • disability.

We also have domestic abuse and sexual violence guidance for schools.
