The protocol outlines practical, good practice approaches for responding to adults and families who are affected by domestic abuse.

The Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Strategic Management Board, the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board and the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board regard domestic abuse as a priority issue to be tackled by partner agencies. The Boards have jointly produced the Domestic Abuse protocol as guidance on the action to be taken by practitioners.

The protocol is for all practitioners and managers working within any Lincolnshire service which supports adults or children who may be experiencing domestic abuse, whether they are experiencing it directly or indirectly.

The protocol outlines practical, good practice approaches for responding to adults and families who are affected by domestic abuse.
