Increasing Safety in High-Risk Domestic Violence : A Counterpoint Special Project funded by the United Way of Greater Toronto

Over the past year Counterpoint saw firsthand the increased risk and vulnerability that women survivors of intimate partner violence experienced due to the public health restrictions of the pandemic. In response to this issue, Counterpoint identified the need to better identify women who are at high-risk and create strategies to increase safety for those in this situation. Counterpoint was successful in obtaining funding to carry out a High-Risk Consult Project, that was completed in summer 2021. The project was successful in allowing Counterpoint to test out a model of collaborative interventions to protect survivors. It also, however, highlighted a number of systemic issues that increase the risk and vulnerability of women at high risk. The Infographic summarizes our experience, learnings, and recommendations for urgent action, that came out of the project.
