Issue details

Each year the Director of Public Health produces an annual report on the health of the population. This year the annual report focuses on domestic violence and abuse. This report covers some key areas including how to recognise signs of domestic abuse and where to get help, who may be at greater risk of experiencing domestic abuse and when, including research on warning signs leading up to domestic homicides. It also covers what is known about interventions that contribute to reducing the risk and harms of domestic abuse and the need for more work to focus on preventing perpetrators from committing domestic abuse. The report makes recommendations based on our local situation for a range of partners in Buckinghamshire to implement. Cabinet is requested to note the Director of Public Health Annual Report and endorse the recommendations within it.
