Domestic abuse procedures, models, matrixs, etc, used by professionals

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hillingdon Borough Council,

Please can you provide me with information regarding the procedural manuals, models, matrixs, etc, used by Hillingdon Child Services social workers where a case of domestic abuse is alleged between adults where children may be effected.

I require:

- current procedural manuals (such as London Child Protection Procedures if you use these)

- any risk identification matrixs (such as the "Barnados Multi Agency Domestic Violence Risk Identification Threshold Scales" used by CAFCASS) with any guidelines on how staff use these

- any other specific forms and matrixs that are currently in use (or older additions where these were used within the last three years), which may include any that are not domestic abuse specific but are regularly used in conjunction with standard modelling (eg, addiction evaluations, flight risks, etc)

- any models the council uses to identify victims of domestic abuse and the guidelines that are in place for their use

- any models the council uses to identify perpetrators of domestic abuse and the guidelines that are in place for their use

- guidelines on how you deal with police reports and enquires

- the councils VAWG policy, and policy for those not covered by this (such as same sex couples)

Please can I have these in a downloadable form such as PDF or Word where possible.

Yours faithfully,

Callum McKechnie
