The Covid-pandemic 19 both reduced access to support and intensified entrapment for those experiencing domestic abuse, and there was particular concern about the potential impact for women and children. Support services had to adapt quickly to a changing landscape.
The DAHLIA-19 (‘Domestic Abuse: Harnessing Learning Internationally from Covid-19’) study sought to explore responses to domestic abuse policy for survivors, children and perpetrators during the pandemic in four countries. Methods included desk-based research, alongside individual interviews, consultations, and online workshops with a range of policy and practice stakeholders and experts.
This presentation will provide an overview of key findings from the study and consider the learning from a developing area of innovative practice which was identified in the UK. The presentation will consider the lessons that can be learned for future policy and practice in domestic abuse and pandemic response.
