 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

16 Days of Action Against Domestic Abuse

Each year from the 25th November (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women)

until 10th December (Human Rights Day)

Each day of the campaign we will be guest hosted by a service that supports those affected by domestic abuse although the campaign is now over please remember that domestic abuse is still happening.

If you are affected by domestic abuse please speak to someone, seek support and advice. You can call the 24 hour freephone number 24/7 for the National Domestic Abuse Helpline 0808 2000 247.

Look at the Get Help section of this website for local support in Bedfordshire.
