PHAST completed a very comprehensive needs assessment on Domestic Abuse, drawing on a wide range of data and information sources.
This included gaining feedback from not only providers and partners but also victim survivors & perpetrators. This work gave us a clear snapshot of the current needs in our area, in the context of the new legislation, the Domestic Abuse Act 2021.
Our allocated project lead worked very closely with me and my team to report back on progress and findings, and ensure we were able to steer the work at all points. The work was supported by an expert advisory group within PHAST to ensure recommendations and direction of travel were in line with good practice.
This was an excellent piece of work, which has given us a strong foundation for our strategic development going forward.

“PHAST provided us with a Board development session on ethical decision making. The session took us through a good overview of theory and principles in decision making and allowed strong group discussion.”

The skills needs assessment undertaken by PHAST has been invaluable in helping us build a picture of what we need to do to build ‘Health in all policies’ skills across the GLA Group.
The extensive discussions with colleagues from across the GLA Group undertaken as part of the assessment are providing us with a firm footing for the next stages in our work – we are now taking the findings of the PHAST work and translating it into a reality.
