Partnership is at the heart of an effective response to domestic abuse. The Tri-Borough Violence Against Women and Girls Partnership in west London is the showcase model of our Coordinated Community Response.
The core partnership consists of six themed working groups and a Strategic Group; the themed working groups ensure delivery of key operational projects and the Strategic Group has overall responsibility for setting the partnership priorities and monitoring performance on the borough Action Plan.
The partnership has representatives from voluntary and statutory agencies all with a duty to provide services and an interest in improving responses to anyone affected by domestic violence in the borough. Survivors’ and practitioners’ perspectives are captured by the operational groups and influence strategic priorities.
Your local partnership
We have extensive experience of developing, managing and operating a successful Coordinated Community Response that produces positive results for survivors and their families, as well as adapting the CCR into local contexts.

"DVIP has worked with Standing Together across a number of boroughs and within a number of projects and partnerships. They have always brought to the work, the integrity, intelligence, flexibility and commitment which are central to ensuring an effective coordinated response to domestic abuse. We look forward to many more years of partnership working."

“In my view, Standing Together exemplifies the benefits of effective Partnership working. Criminal justice issues are raised in a constructive, yet collegiate environment and the level of representation and commitment is such that information is shared, and action taken, where necessary, to the benefit of our joint working arrangements”
