Strategy and policy
Our vision for Derby and Derbyshire is that everyone can live safe lives, without the threat or experience of domestic or sexual abuse because it is not tolerated by our residents or our organisations.
The Derby and Derbyshire Domestic Abuse and Sexual Abuse Strategy (2023 - 2026) is intended to guide the work of the Derby and Derbyshire Domestic and Sexual Abuse Partnership Board, providing a framework for all those individuals and partners working towards the vision set out within this document.
There is a commitment from all relevant partner agencies, to ensure that we continue to review and improve services for all victims of domestic abuse and sexual abuse in Derby and Derbyshire.
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 gave Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council the statutory duty to provide support in safe accommodation for victims of domestic abuse and to publish a strategy outlining how they will do this. The Derby and Derbyshire Domestic Abuse Support in Accommodation Strategy (2021 - 2024) is also attached to this page.
