Domestic Abuse

Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse (CAADA) has published a new report, 'A place of greater safety', on the efficacy of domestic abuse services. Key findings include:
• Services for victims save at least £2.90 for every £1 spent
• After receiving support from Independent Domestic Violence Advisors and other high risk services?, 63% of victims reported a total cessation of abuse, with professionals reporting a reduction in risk levels for 74% of cases.
• 69% of victims also reported that the quality of their life had improved
• Victims who are identified through health agencies were likely to be experiencing a shorter length of abuse than victims who are identified by the police or who self refer
