Domestic Homicide Reviews
The Safer Ealing Partnership has responsibility for Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) within Ealing.
DHRs are carried out to ensure that lessons are learnt when a person aged 16 or over has or appears to have been killed as a result of violence, abuse or neglect by:
- a person whom he/she was related or had been in an intimate personal relationship
- a member of the same household.
The purpose of a DHR is to:
- establish what lessons are to be learned from the domestic homicide regarding the way in which local professionals and organisations work individually and together to safeguard victims
- identify clearly what those lessons are both within and between agencies, how and within what timescales they will be acted on, and what is expected to change as a result
- apply those lessons to service responses including changes to policies and procedures as appropriate
- prevent domestic violence homicide and improve service responses for all domestic violence victims and their children through improved intra and inter-agency working.
The Home Office has published guidance on when we need to set up a domestic homicide review and how to do it. This is explained on the GOV.UK website
