We believe that collaboration enables us and other services in Belfast and Lisburn to do our best work and learn from each other so as to provide the best support we can to victims of domestic abuse.
We are part of the Belfast Area Domestic & Sexual Violence and Abuse Partnership, which is also made up of a range of statutory and voluntary agencies and organisations, including Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, Cara-Friend, Housing Executive, Men’s Advisory Project, PSNI, PBNI, the Education Authority Belfast and more. You can read more about the members of the Partnership here.
Various staff members are represented on the various working groups of the Partnership, including MARAC, Support & Prevention, Protection & Justice and Training & Development. We have been and will continue to be involved in a variety of projects in each of these working groups through the Partnership.
The purpose of this Partnership is to carry out an action plan which reflects the themes and actions outlined in the Department of Health and Department of Justice’s Stopping Domestic & Sexual Violence and Abuse Strategy 2016-2023. You can read more about how the Partnership operates here.
At Belfast & Lisburn Women’s Aid we consistently run and are involved in a variety of projects. See below for some of our current projects:
