DASH Risk Assessment Tool & MARAC Referral Form

The South Yorkshire version of the national ACPO DASH tool - for use by all agencies - is a Word file so that you can complete it electronically. Note that the tool is updated occassionally - the most recent version is always under 'Resources' on the DACT website: www.sheffielddact.org.uk

 

Risk Factors & Definitions

A handy visual summary that VIDA produced to illustrate the key risk factors associated with domestic abuse, and a list definitions for some of the commonly used language in risk assessment, including high, medium and standard risk.

 

Safety Planning Tips & Template [individually below]

VIDA training usually includes a slot on safety planning, as a very practical way of engaging service users in planning for times of danger, rather than have to react in a crisis situation, when it can be difficult to think clearly and make safe choices. We have created this sheet for anyone to use, for themselves or with others: the Tips make suggestions for safety planning for adults and their children, while still living with the perpetrator and after separation [which can be the most risky time]. The Template provides a useful sheet that those affected by domestic abuse can complete - it may not be safe to take this home, so some people memorise the details and leave their safety plan with a trusted supporter.

 

Summary Guide for High Risk Referrals

VIDA have created this 4-page summary of important information from the Sheffield MARAC Operating Protocol, to help guide high risk referrals to MARAC and IDVAS - the full Protocol is available to download from the DACT website: www.sheffielddact.org.uk 

 

Sheffield Pathways

The agreed pathways for Sheffield domestic and sexual abuse services and responses, created by Sheffield DACT, are available under 'Resources' on their website at: www.sheffielddact.org.uk
