The Dufferin/Caledon Domestic Assault Review Team (DART) was founded in 1994 by eight agencies to improve the working relationships, communications and response services of the County of Dufferin and Town of Caledon (Peel Region) agencies serving victims of woman assault. In 1995, A Protocol Dealing with Wife/Partner Assault and Criminal Harassment in Dufferin-Caledon was developed and signed by eight agencies to formalize their association.
In 2006 the original protocol was updated and revised to describe the current services in this sector, highlight interagency agreements, engender commitment and provide a vehicle for training workers. The document, Strength in Collaboration: A Protocol for the Dufferin/Caledon Domestic Assault Review Team
, focuses on the area of woman abuse.

Updating the original protocol required considerable participation of the DART Committee members. DART representatives have generously offered their time, expertise and the materials necessary to describe their services and guide development of the Protocol. Lyn Allen, of Family Transition Place, deserves special acknowledgement in recognition of her considerable contribution toward orienting, directing and lending expertise to the project.
The committee gratefully acknowledges the Ministry of Community and Social Services who provided the funding to make this project possible.
