The North East Hampshire Domestic Abuse Forum will endeavour to bring together representatives from the many statutory, voluntary and private agencies that deal with the difficult and complex issues surrounding domestic violence/abuse.
The strength of the forum lies in the fact that it has links with the local community that it serves. It is important that the forum can reach out, through its membership, to help, advise, and support victims who live and work in the communities of Rushmoor and Hart.
The forum aims to promote multi-agency working, collective decision-making, comprehensive information sharing and data collection. Through these mediums it will be able to spearhead initiatives, disseminate information and signpost agencies that provide support and assistance.
Most importantly the forum wishes to work towards improving the health, well being and lives of the many victims of domestic violence/abuse, whoever they may be.
