What support does Equation offer for men?
This service will provide time-limited support to men who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
- Risk assessment will be undertaken to identify risk of harm to the client using a DASH RIC form (you may already have completed one of these as part of your support).
- The type of support provided will be identified against risk level and need.
- Support may include practical and emotional assistance, and signposting to other specialist services such as counselling
- Assessment will be made to ensure that work with the individual is appropriate and safe.
Equation operates structured safeguarding and assessment protocols in its work with men.
