Bedfordshire Domestic Abuse Partnership


Bedfordshire Domestic Abuse Partnership

Welcome to the Bedfordshire Domestic Abuse Partnership (BDAP).  The Partnership brings together key agencies across Bedfordshire to raise awareness, to deliver services and to work together to improve our local response to domestic abuse.

At BDAP we work closely with local authorities and other agencies to provide services in the local area, we deliver a two-tier training programme for professionals who work with those affected by domestic abuse and we strive to bring all those agencies working locally together to ensure a coordinated response to domestic abuse.   BDAP also coordinates the monthly Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARAC) and the Domestic Abuse Champion Scheme in both Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire

Survivor's Support

If you are the survivor of domestic abuse or a current victim, there are services throughout Bedfordshire to help you.
