Ofsted Praise for You First Hampshire

A recent report from Ofsted has highlighted You First Hampshire’s  Family Intervention Team project as being excellent practice, with praise for the Domestic Abuse and Violence workers being particularly effective and engaged.

The Joint Targeted Area inspection looked at all domestic abuse services within the area of Hampshire, focussing on children living with domestic violence. An article following the report  in ‘Children and Young People Now’ cites:

“”Inspectors were particularly impressed that senior managers were able to co-ordinate an effective response to domestic violence across the county’s large geographic area, stating that “it is evident that leaders in all organisations are committed to the partnership and that they appropriately prioritise the protection of these children”.
The placing of specialist domestic abuse workers in the county’s family intervention team, which targets vulnerable families, was also noted by inspectors as being “an impressive and creative service that generated its own evidence of effectiveness and impact”. ”

Excellent partnership working between the  statutory and voluntary sectors is absolutely crucial to ensure vulnerable adults and children receive the support they need. We’re so proud to be involved in the delivery of such important and outstanding work.
