About us

The Kingston Domestic Violence (DV) Hub is a service offering a single point of access for self or agency referrals, and to support practitioners working with victims of domestic violence. Research demonstrates the value of independent support for victims – even if you are working closely with a service user, a DV specialist may be able to provide extra guidance for your practice or support for the victim. They can also link the client to support networks in the borough. The DV Hub is home to a team of DV professionals, including Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVAs); Domestic Violence caseworkers; a children’s worker. Practitioners are encouraged to call the DV Hub for help and advice around working with domestic violence. A key function of the DV Hub is to support practitioners in risk assessing all cases where domestic violence is a feature.
