This project will create an intervention programme to be used by practitioners from Children and Young Peoples Services with young people who have experienced domestic abuse and display violence. The focus for this intervention is around those who display high levels of violence including those that have been convicted of offences through the Courts.
The aims of the project are: –
To meet the needs of this small number of young people who have been victim of domestic abuse and go onto commit violent offences/display violence where current intervention programmes have not been effective.
To reduce the number of violence offences/incidents of violence by this group of young people and reduce the number of young people continuing onto being long term perpetrators of violence.
Reduce the likelihood and impact of these offences on potential victims and repeat victims.
To include Trafford CYPS practitioner’s views and experiences to ensure the intervention programme meets the needs of the target group of young people.
To include young peoples experiences of domestic abuse as an integral part of this programme therefore ensuring that its meets their needs.
To deliver high quality bespoke training to increase the knowledge and confidence of the Trafford CYPS workforce in delivering the programme.
These aims will be met via the following approaches:
Creating a high quality intervention for use with young people.
Engaging with professionals and collating their views and opinions.
Engaging young people in the programme.
Building on previous work of the scoping group.
