Statistics and reports

Domestic Homicide Reviews

Domestic Homicide Reviews are one way to improve responses to domestic violence and aim to prevent what happened to your family member happening to others. They will try to ensure that public bodies like social services, councils, police and other community based organisations understand what happened that led to the death of your family member and identify where responses to the situation could be improved. From this, the public bodies hope to learn all the right lessons including those which impact how they work together. These reviews will not seek to lay blame but to consider what happened and what could have been done differently. They will also recommend actions to improve responses to domestic violence situations in the future.

Domestic Homicide Reviews are part of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 and became law from 13th April 2011. They do not replace but will be in addition to the inquest or any other form of inquiry.

Bristol City Council have a duty to publish completed Domestic Homicide Reviews once they have been completed
