The Key Findings from Analysis of Domestic Homicide Reviews analysed 124 DHRs reviewed by the Home Office in the 12 months from October 2019.  Today’s episode allows you to access the workshop with Gaynor & Davina, 2 of the authors. This episode is important listening whether you work in the world of Domestic Homicide Reviews, Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews or Safeguarding Adults Reviews. Domestic abuse clearly features within all of these reviews, & there is data within this analysis which we all need to know about.

For instance:

– 46% of the victims had been the target of a perpetrator previously, almost always their previous partner.

– In 64% of the DHRs aggravating factors were identified, with coercive control being the most common.
