Learning from domestic abuse case tragedies
Arch fully backs the changes in England and Wales which mean that every domestic abuse death will be automatically reviewed to make sure lessons are learned about violence in the home.
Together with the police and health services, local authorities, probation, voluntary groups and any other bodies connected to a victim will now have to examine together exactly what went wrong and consider how to spot the signs when someone's life is in danger.
According to Home Office figures, every week across England and Wales two people (males and females) are killed by their current or former partner.
Wendy Wainwright, Head of Arch Domestic Violence Services said:
"Reviewing all domestic abuse homicides is a positive development. It will inform agencies involved in the field of domestic abuse about what is needed to manage risk effectively and prevent future tragedies occurring.
The review process will also highlight shortfalls and gaps in services that will require secure and consistent funding to ensure that victims can be kept safe and are able to make independent choices".
