If you are a professional who is supporting someone affected by domestic abuse you can refer them directly into Calderdale Staying Safe. We understand that you are busy so we do not insist on completion of a lengthy referral form. You can refer by phone or via email or via our cjsm email if you have access to that system
We will need to take some details from you about the person you are referring and you must have the person’s consent to refer directly into us.
Professionals working with someone who they believe are at high risk of serious harm or death can refer into MARAC via the DA hub.
