Independent Domestic Violence Advisers (IDVA)

IDVAs provide emotional and practical advice, guidance and support to help you and your family to become and remain safe. They will seek ways to empower you to make positive safe choices and they will liaise with other professionals on your behalf. The support they provide could include help for you through a court process, help to access safe accommodation and advocate on your behalf.

Accessing our local service

Our IDVA service is a specialist service for adults and their children assessed as at high risk. We take referrals for the IDVA service through the Oxfordshire MARAC referral process. We work closely with Oxfordshire Domestic Abuse Service, ADAS, who support standard and medium risk victims.

If you or someone close to you is at risk and needs individual support please contact the Oxfordshire helpline. The helpline will direct you to the best service for your needs – including referral to us through the MARAC if we are the right service for you.

If you are a professional, for general information about DASH risk assessment and MARACs, please visit Tools for Professionals.
