Welcome to the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Partnership.
The Partnership brings together key agencies across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with the aim of reducing the harm, risks and costs associated with domestic abuse and sexual violence and to prevent these crimes occurring across Cambridgeshire.
Use this web site to find information about domestic abuse and sexual violence, including advice leaflets and how to access local services.
Please be aware that any documents you download from this site may save to your computer's history. If this is a risk for you, please remember to delete the document from the computer (this is not the same as deleting internet history).
If someone is in immediate danger, always call 999
We have partnered with libraries across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough to make Libraries safe spaces for victims of domestic abuse. Look out for the information posters in libraries, staff can signpost you to local or national support organisations and can provide you with confidential use of a telephone (where available) or computer (all libraries)

Curtesy of @sleafordmods last night 👏🏼 With sexual assault cases creeping back up at shows, these reminders are vital. This behaviour will not be tolerated. All parties - including artists - have responsibility to make change and call out inappropriate behaviour at their shows. https://t.co/5hQNlc7pVq
In honour of #InternationalDayOfPeopleWithDisability I have written a short blog about my experience seeing first-hand how criminals groom and exploit disabled adults for their own gain. Read it here: https://t.co/FQ8DNoa892

'only 7% of the public think of older adults when they think of victims of abuse. 20% of people think of animals' This shocking report from @wearehourglass_ shows how abuse of older people is largely ignored https://t.co/fsxGAlGxP3
