There were 2,405 reported incidents of domestic abuse in the borough between October 2017 and September 2018.
More than 600 of these became violent and the figures show a 5.3% increase compared to the previous year.
“We are ramping up our plans to take action against people who commit these terrible offences,” said Councillor, Viddy Persaud.
“No one should have to experience violence and we want to send a clear message that this will not be tolerated.”
The scheme is also aimed at spotting the early signs of domestic violence and supporting victims who have already been abused.
“Women and girls should feel safe and protected both inside and outside of their homes and feel reassured that we are working closely with the police, refuges and other agencies to reduce incidences and provide the necessary help and support,” Persaud added.
A violence against women and girls conference will be hosted this summer by Havering Council.
