Safer York Partnership and North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership hold the responsibility for Strategic Governance of  Domestic Abuse across the City and County.  This joint work enables us to re-locate both perpetrators and victims between the two Local Authorities and also delivers more effective and efficient ways of working through a single partnership structure.

Operational delivery is overseen by a Join Co-ordinating Group co-chaired by Head of Community Safety, City of York Council and Head of Safer Communities, North Yorkshire County Council.  This group writes the York & North Yorkshire Domestic Abuse Strategy, oversees the commissioning of Domestic Abuse Services and co-ordinates the delivery of the action plan associated with the strategy.


  • Contribute to the refresh and implementation of the Domestic Abuse Strategy for York & North Yorkshire
  • Ensure that within York,  partners are contributing to the local delivery structure and implementation of the Action Plan
  • Ensure that within York, partners are engaged with the Domestic Abuse Forum for York and Selby to up-skill front line workers and benefit from the sharing of information and good practice
