Domestic Abuse Service Pathway (DASP) following a police incident. Our Domestic Abuse Service, Women's Aid East and Midlothian, EDDACs and Police Scotland work together to offer prompt support and safety planning following a domestic abuse incident through our referral system. We ensure that most the suitable support agency responds and avoid people being contacted numerous times.
Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) - The purpose of the MARAC is to improve the safety of high risk victims of domestic abuse and their children or other vulnerable dependants. The complexities of domestic abuse mean that no one agency can achieve this on their own. By sharing information from a range of agencies, the MARAC can obtain a full picture of what is going on and the risks faced by the victim, their children or any other vulnerable dependants in the household and a multi agency action plan can address those risks.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse and would like support please contact Womens Aid. If you are concerned that someone you know may be a victim of domestic abuse, you should contact Police Scotland Disclosure Scheme.
