First response IDVA service

The short-term support offered by the First Responders/Crisis Intervention IDVAs is really the start of your journey. We will work with you to assess and manage the risk you are in, and develop an action plan with you on short, medium and long term goals.

12-week IDVA service

Following on from our first response service, if you have further needs that need addressing or if you need continued support with things like accessing accommodation, it is our 12-week IDVA service that can help you. We also have a specialised IDVA who works solely with 16 – 25 year olds. 

Family Court IDVA service

Our family court IDVA service is a major part of our service. The IDVA will liaise with different criminal justice agencies, such as the police, witness care and the Crown Prosecution Service, and will support you the whole way.

Male IDVA service

We help all victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence, both female and male. Our male IDVA service is a specialist service which works solely with male victims.

Hospital and GP IDVA service

We have specially trained IDVAs who are based at Bradford Royal Infirmary, Airedale Hospital and various GP surgeries across the district. Their role is to ensure you are safe, to offer support, to talk to you about the services we offer and if appropriate refer you into the service for further support once you are discharged.

Complex needs service

Our complex needs practictioner works alongside the MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conferences) Navigator Team who are part of the Bridge Project. This service is designed to help people who have struggled to engage with our services and need a bit of extra support.

ISVA service

Our Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) can support anyone who has been the victim of sexual violence – whether this happened 2 days ago or 30 years ago.

Our ISVAs can support you if you are thinking about reporting the crime, or if your case is going through the criminal justice system. We can help you through the court process and explain what is likely to happen when a report is made to the police.

We have excellent links with the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) and can explain their role in helping you.

Early intervention service

Early intervention means identifying and providing effective early support to people who are at risk. We work in schools and other organisations and raise awareness of healthy and unhealthy relationships, we challenge some cultural ‘norms’ and we engage with people at an early stage to encourage positive behaviour change. 

Recovery and resilience service

Our Recovery and Resilience team provides a range of group work programmes with the aim to promote a culture of change to prevent and reduce repeat victimisation, to improve mental wellbeing, to increase education and employment opportunities and to ensure community integration.
