Family Engagement Assessor

Domestic Abuse Prevention Project

Volunteers on our domestic abuse prevention project visit people’s homes following a domestic incident being reported to the police. During the home visit the assessor will use listening and questioning skills to help identify whether there are other issues contributing to the relationship problems. Sometimes issues such as debt, children, substance dependency issues or counselling needs can contribute to unhealthy relationships. The home visitor’s role is to assess the family’s needs and provide information, signpost or referral to other organisations, so that those involved can get the help they need and prevent further incidents occurring.
