I am a Professional

First Light and Barnardo’s are working in partnership to provide the integrated Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (DASV) service for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. This service has been commissioned by the Safer Cornwall Partnership and offers a range of early intervention, prevention, therapy and recovery programmes to children, young people and adults affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.

All aspects of the service are free at the point of delivery. We believe that ending abuse is everybody’s business which is why we offer professionals advice and training. If you are working with someone who you think would benefit from our services, you can make a referral to us.

Included in the service

The integrated service approach is made up of the following programmes:

This integrated service is available throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The programmes and interventions are delivered across a range of geographic settings and based on best practice multi-disciplinary ‘think family’ and ‘trauma-informed’ approaches, therapeutic interventions, developmental group work, outreach services and drop-in provisions.

When referring a client, if you would like to send us a completed DASH form, please email it to [email protected].

DASH risk assessment forms can be downloaded from the Safe Lives website here.
