To approve and adopt the Domestic Abuse Strategy 2022-24
RESOLVED that the Bracknell Forest Domestic Abuse Strategy 2022-24, approved by the Bracknell Forest Domestic Abuse Executive Group, be endorsed.
To complete the implementation process of the new Bracknell Forest Domestic
Abuse Strategy 2022-24.
Not to implement a new Domestic Abuse Strategy for Bracknell Forest. This option is
not recommended. The 2017-20 Domestic Abuse Strategy 2017-20 has already
lapsed. The DA Executive Group approved continuation of the 2017-20 strategy and
action plan throughout the COVID-19 pandemic however now needs refreshing and
updating. A shared strategic approach which provides clear priorities is crucial to
ensure domestic abuse can be prevented and identified, that those affected and their
children receive safe and timely support at the earliest opportunity and that perpetrators are held to account and supported to change their behaviour.
