Making a Referral
You can make referrals to the RAISE - Thanet & Dover Domestic Abuse Interventions Team or to the Early Intervention & Prevention Team.
Please indicate the pathway you feel would be most appropriate. We will then work with the service user to determine what support will best suit their needs.
The RAISE Team offer a range of interventions. Pathways include Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs) providing community support (non-high risk), MARAC support (high risk) or Court support (both family and criminal justice interventions), Refuge - short and longer term placements, group and 1-1 opportunities
Children and Young People
The Early Intervention & Prevention Team run several projects all with the aim of improving the lives of young people in our communities. Find out more here.
