Implementing Safe & Together in Scotland
A learning event considering the emerging evidence and impact of embedding domestic abuse informed systems, services and workforces
About this Event

The Safe & Together Model is an internationally recognised suite of tools and interventions designed to help social workers and other key professionals to engage with families experiencing domestic abuse in a child-centred, strengths-based way. Implementing Safe & Together in Scotland: Creating Domestic Abuse-Informed Workforces, Services and Systems - Year Two Learning Report marks the second in a series of reports highlighting key learning about the activities from 12 local authorities/ partnerships funded through the Delivering Equally Safe fund to embed the Safe & Together Model, the impact this work is having and the barriers and enablers to embedding domestic abuse-informed practice and processes identified by those organisations.

  • Explore links between this work and other key priorities that stakeholders are progressing locally and nationally to improve outcomes for children and families - including the implementation of UNCRC, the Promise and the National Trauma Transformation Programme; and
  • Following the publication of the refreshed Equally Safe strategy in 2023, consider next steps and opprtunities for joined up wokring across naitonal priorities and agendas in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and fmailies in Scotland.

In October 2021, the Scottish Government provided funding through the Delivering Equally Safe (DES) Fund to support 12 local authorities/partnerships to progress activities to embed the Safe & Together Model between October 2021 and March 2025 and provided funding to the Improvement Service to work alongside these 12 local authorities/partnerships to support them in their improvement journey, with a particular focus on generating learning on the impact on the long-term ambition to embed domestic abuse informed workforces, systems and service across Scotland.
