Please answer our call

phone

Pretty much every year for the past 9 years we have promised ourselves that we will do a proper count of how many practising IDVAs there are across the country.  The terms ‘back of the envelope calculation’ and ‘guesstimate’ are beginning to wear a bit thin, so we have finally decided to take a step forwards and actually find out exactly the figure.

Over the next week, every member of the CAADA team will be calling every single IDVA service in the country to find out how many IDVAs they employ, how many are qualified and some brief details about the profile of victims that they work with.  We will be reporting this back to the Home Secretary in September as part of her HMIC National Oversight Group.  So if you get a call from CAADA in the next week….please answer.

Many thanks

  2. At last, now the true number of untrained and non-accredited ‘IDVA’s’ will come to light. I have been quite concerned about this for some time. Never under estimate the knowledge gained doing your training and how a ‘little’ knowledge ( or lack of training) has the potential for dangerous consequences.
