Domestic Abuse is high on national government agendas, not least because it is a child protection issue. A Domestic Abuse Conference Call (DACC) has been developed to target low-medium risk victims of domestic abuse. The initiative involves lead members of relevant agencies cascading information to frontline practitioners with an aim of informing them of an incident at an early stage in the domestic abuse cycle. This enables an informed assessment to take place, and to signpost the victim to local domestic abuse support services. A work-based project was undertaken to evaluate the influence of the DACC on health visiting practice. The DACC is a positive step in coordinating a joint approach to deliver an effective service to victims of domestic abuse. Information sharing of low-medium risk victims has the potential to reduce the number of high risk victims and improve their life chances.
