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.

Reasons for the decision:

To complete the implementation process of the new Bracknell Forest Domestic

Abuse Strategy 2022-24.

Alternative options considered:

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.
