How we work with our partners
Who drives the work to reduce Violence against Women and Girls in Haringey?
The council’s response to violence against women and girls is located within Public Health, with strong links to the Community Safety Team. The Cabinet Member for Communities is responsible for this portfolio of work. The Strategic Lead provides regular briefings to the Cabinet Member for Communities in conjunction with the Director of Public Health and Head of Community Safety and Regulatory Services.
The Violence Against Women and Girls Strategic Group has corporate responsibility for this work, which is monitored by the Community Safety Partnership and Priority Board Three. The Strategic Group is a director level group and is chaired by the Director of Public Health. The group is responsible for leading and supporting the implementation of the coordinated community response (to violence against women and girls in Haringey), through the strategic coordination of commissioning of violence against women and girls services, partnership working and receiving assurances that effective and appropriate organisational responses are in place. Any work, projects or commissioning activity conducted on violence against women and girls in Haringey will be overseen, agreed and informed by the Violence Against Women and Girls Strategic Group. A Violence Against Women and Girls Advisory Board was also created which links into the Strategic Group and is comprised of directors of specialist services working in Haringey and across London.
The governance arrangements also include several subgroups to support the work of the Strategic Group.
- Violence Against Women and Girls Commissioning Group
- Domestic Violence Disclosure Right To Know Scheme multi agency decision group – sub group of the MARAC meeting for focused case discussions on how disclosures will be managed
- Specialist DV Court Steering Group
- Harmful Practices Group
- Training Task and Finish Group
- White Ribbon Task and Finish Group
The violence against women and girls governance and meeting structure (PDF, 44KB) is also informed and supported by task and finish groups for specific work activities. The need for additional task and finish groups will be discussed and authorised by the Strategic Group.
