In April 2011 Community Safety Partnerships became responsible for carrying out Domestic Homicide Reviews in respect of any death occurring as a result of domestic violence and abuse.

The aim of these reviews is to examine the circumstances leading up to the death, and establish whether there are any lessons to be learned for agencies involved in responding to domestic abuse.
The reports attached are the Overview Reports into each completed case, which have been redacted to remove personal details which are not already in the public domain. Each one has an Action Plan at the end, and this has been updated to show the progress made to date on implementing the recommendations.

These reports have been submitted to the Home Office for scrutiny and have been approved for wider publication.

The Safer Stronger Doncaster Partnership commissioned an independent Chair and Report Writer in each case, to ensure impartiality and they have no connection with local services.
In all reviews family members are asked to participate and where they have chosen to be involved the review has benefited greatly from their involvement. The Report Authors and the Partnership would like to express their sincere thanks to the family members who participated in the Reviews, at such a difficult time in their lives. We hope that they can see that their views were valued and acted upon in the reports.

The Reviews also contribute to the Doncaster domestic and sexual abuse training and the Doncaster Domestic Abuse Strategy.
