Tackling Domestic Abuse: Opportunities for Reform and Innovation

The recent joint Home Office/Ministry of Justice consultation on tackling domestic violence and abuse highlights a number of areas of potential public sector reform to support the victims of domestic violence and abuse and prevent incidents from coming to fruition. These include welcome suggestions for better service commissioning, improving victims’ support pathways and partnership working across local authority boundaries. Alongside these, the impact technology is already having on reducing domestic violence and abuse, and could have if incorporated into new powers, is a subject that this roundtable will explore.

This event brought together a range of relevant stakeholders, including parliamentarians, victim support and advocacy groups, representatives from both central and local government, academics, and private sector experts, for a roundtable discussion around strategies and best practices to combat domestic abuse.

The roundtable was held under the Chatham House rule.
