Identifying and Supporting People Experiencing Domestic Violence

“The number of people experiencing domestic abuse is still far too high. Despite record numbers of prosecutions and convictions, there are two million victims of domestic abuse every year in England and Wales. That’s two million people living in fear and two million people too many… We want to transform our approach to tackling domestic abuse to create a society where domestic abuse is stopped, where victims feel safe and supported and where perpetrators are properly punished.” Home Secretary Amber Rudd July 2017

“An estimated 1.9 million adults aged 16 to 59 years experienced domestic abuse in the last year, according to the year ending March 2017… A total of 83,136 high-risk cases were discussed at multi-agency risk assessment conferences in the year ending March 2017, equating to 36 cases per 10,000 adult females…. Domestic abuse is often a hidden crime that is not reported to the police, which is why the estimated number of victims is much higher than the number of incidents and crimes recorded by the police.” Office for National Statistics, November 2017

“Looking at this latest data from ONS we can see significant gaps in the response still exist for people experiencing abuse. Victims are not ‘hidden’ – they're coming forward in increasing numbers – we’re simply not doing enough yet to see them and respond. We hope this new evidence will encourage agencies to work together to see the whole picture, putting in place the best response, at the earliest stage, for all members of the family.” Suzanne Jacob OBE, Safe Lives, November 2017

“The Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a step change in the identification of and response to domestic abuse by public sector agencies, and set in motion a cultural shift in the way that our communities recognise and react to survivors”. The Baroness Manzoor CBE

We are pleased to announce the Domestic Abuse Summit 2018 which will focus on identifying and supporting people experiencing domestic abuse.  The event aims to bring together all members of multi agency teams working to improve services and support for domestic abuse, to understand current issues and the national context, to debate and discuss service developments and to learn from best practice examples and expertly led extended sessions.
