The purpose of Bury Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been exposed to Domestic abuse.
Children are at increased risk of physical injury during an incident, either by accident or because they attempt to intervene. Even when not directly injured, children are greatly distressed by witnessing the physical and emotional suffering of a parent.
Operation Encompass has been created to address this situation. It is the implementation of key partnership working between the police and schools.
The aim of sharing information with local schools is to allow ‘Key Adults’ the opportunity of engaging with the child and to provide access to support that allows them to remain in a safe but secure familiar environment.
