Operation Encompass is a charitable organisation created in 2010, which has since enabled effective interventions to many thousands of children who've experienced domestic abuse. 


Co-Creator Elisabeth Carney-Haworth OBE

“Operation Encompass is simply one of the best things that has happened in Safeguarding in schools during my very long career in education. The information received from the police enables us to truly engage in early intervention which in turn helps us to support our children in the way we need to.

Such a simple idea but one with profound impact. And this has been recognised across the education, police and safeguarding sectors. The Inspectorate of schools (Ofsted) and the police (HMICFRS) have both supported our scheme and recently we have received a huge endorsement from the Home Office as they have funded aspects of our work to ensure Operation Encompass is in place across the whole of our country.”

Founder David Carney-Haworth OBE

“Sadly domestic abuse is prevalent across all tiers of our society and in many cases there are children present in these situations. Research tells us that these children are negatively affected by experiencing that domestic abuse. That is why living in a household where there is domestic abuse is seen as an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE). This scheme brings domestic abuse out into the open and enables schools to show that they will support, without judgment, families and children who are experiencing this abuse.”
