Integrated Safety Response (ISR)

ISR is a multi-agency intervention designed to ensure the immediate safety of victims and children, and to work with perpetrators to prevent further violence.

ISR takes a whole-of-family and whānau approach that puts the risk and needs of family and whānau at the centre.

The operational delivery of ISR is hosted by Police as part of the broader Government work on family violence and sexual violence.

Key features of ISR include dedicated staff, funded specialist services for victims and perpetrators, daily risk assessment and triage, family safety plans, an electronic case management system, and an intensive case management approach to collectively work with high-risk families.
