Across the country, one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute.

Essex CRC offers strong support to the police and councils in Essex in their new and exciting campaign to encourage more victims of domestic abuse to seek help and support. ‘Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse’ is the largest ever Essex-wide domestic abuse campaign. Probation staff in Essex work with both convicted domestic abusers and separately with their victims, to prevent further abuse. Partnerships with the police and other agencies can reduce the risk of further harm. “However, we need to reach all those victims of undetected abuse, which continues daily across the county. This campaign is very important,” said Mary Archer, Chief Executive of the Essex Community Rehabilitation Company.

Essex Police sees a rise in domestic incidents during the summer months. It also expects a further increase in incidents this year due to the World Cup football tournament, in particular on the days when the England team are playing, so the campaign is timed to have maximum impact.

There’s a lot of information on the Essex Police website about domestic abuse and how the police and their partners can help victims and survivors to leave an abusive relationship, or stay safe within one.
