What support for men does Equation offer?

This service will provide time-limited support to men who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse.

  • Risk assessment will be undertaken to identify risk of harm to the client using a DASH RIC form (you may already have completed one of these as part of your support).
  • The type of support provided will be identified against risk level and need.
  • Support may include practical and emotional assistance, and signposting to other specialist services such as counselling
  • Assessment will be made to ensure that work with the individual is appropriate and safe.

Equation operates structured safeguarding and assessment protocols in its work with men.

What else do you need to do?

If you are working with a man you have assessed as high risk you need to follow MARAC procedures.  If you are unsure what this means, please contact Equation’s service for men on 0115  960  5556 and we will talk you through the process.
