Domestic abuse

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence and abuse. It can happen between intimate partners, ex partners or family members.

Zero tolerance approach

We are committed to preventing and eradicating all forms of violence and abuse against women, children and men in Hillingdon, and to support those who have been victimised, so they can achieve their full potential in life.

We want Hillingdon to be a safe space for everyone and we are committed to our zero tolerance policy to domestic abuse.

Our main priorities

  1. Prevention and engagement - we and our partners are committed to working with communities, charities and others to make violence and abuse unacceptable in all communities. There is a clear commitment to protecting victims and breaking the cycle of offending.
  2. Service provision - we and our partners will engage with victims and survivors to understand their experiences of services. By listening to victims and survivors, action will be taken to improve services and the right services will be commissioned and coordinated to prevent violence and abuse in a sustained way.
  3. Pursuing perpetrators - we and our partners will work to strengthen the justice response. This work will also include strengthening agencies work in assessing and minimising the risks posed by perpetrators. 
  4. Partnership working - together the Safer Hillingdon Partnership, will work with a broad coalition of partners to create a safer borough and a safer future for victims, survivors and future generations.
