Abstract BackgroundAn estimated 5,100 women have been a victim of domestic abuse in Walsall in the last year, this has a significant impact on outcomes for children, families and communities. It was recognised that a new approach to tackling domestic abuse was needed.MethodsA combined epidemiological and corporate methodology was used to update the domestic abuse needs assessment, engaging with all local partners as part of the JSNA.Results Quantitative and qualitative data and evidence were gathered and presented using a standard format:What are we already doing?What gaps have been identified?What should we be doing? (evidence base)RecommendationsSix key areas were identified:Primary preventionWorkforce developmentSupport for victimsSupport for childrenWork with perpetratorsSystem-based approach (strategic leadership, co-ordination, data/intelligence/information sharing)ImpactThis is the first time the multiagency data have been brought together in Walsall, with pathways, demand and services considered within the context of the evidence base.This was instrumental in assisting the multi-agency partnership group to understand the interconnectivity of their operations. The needs assessment was signed off by the Safer Walsall Partnership BoardThis led to a fundamental strategic decision to bring work programmes together and approach domestic abuse from a toxic trio perspective.The findings and recommendations have been used to commission new services for victims and perpetrators.The approach and results have been recognised as good practice by West Midlands Police, Walsall Community Rehabilitation Company and Walsall Council.
