UCS publishes research on domestic abuse

Domestic Abuse Report

An independent report published by University Campus Suffolk (UCS) takes an unprecedented look at how victims of domestic abuse consider they are supported in the county.

The research, commissioned by the Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore and led by UCS’s Senior Lecturer Dr Emma Bond, considers verbatim data drawn from individual interviews and focus groups based on the experiences of 69 Suffolk survivors (63 females and 6 males) who volunteered to take part in the study.

Dr Emma Bond from University Campus Suffolk said “The report has identified many areas of good practice in relation to the support victims and survivors of domestic violence have received. Many agencies in Suffolk acknowledge the importance of partnership working, inter-professional practice, and that domestic violence must be addressed in ways that recognise that solutions must be as much proactive and preventative as reactive.”
