Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a unique Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next  school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience(ACE)

Operation Encompass mitigates against the damaged caused by exposure to Domestic Abuse and other ACE’s

ACELens® is the arm of Operation Encompass raising awareness and supporting children exposed to domestic abuse and other ACE’s

Bradley Simmons, South West Regional Director. OFSTED

“(Domestic abuse) It’s a huge issue- 6.5 million people over 16 are estimated to have been a victim of domestic abuse or violence and many of those episodes will have been witnessed by children.

One of the things that we found is there isn’t really a focus on the needs of children who do witness such violence and they can arrive at school traumatised.

They often present as quite difficult young people because of what’s going on at home but actually Operation Encompass is doing exactly the right thing.

There’s joint agency working so the school knows at once when a child has witnessed domestic abuse and is able to make provisions”.
