Domestic Homicide Review

Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHR) were established by the Home Office on a statutory basis under section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims act (2004).  They came into effect on 13 April 2011.

A Domestic Homicide Review is a review of  the circumstances in which the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by:

  • a person to whom they were related or were a member of the same household, or
  • with whom they were or had been in an intimate personal relationship

Community Safety Partnerships are responsible for managing the Domestic Homicide Review process. In Sefton, this is the Safer Sefton Together partnership.

What are they for?

The purpose of a Domestic Homicide Review is to establish any lessons learned, apply these lessons to service responses  and to help prevent future domestic abuse related deaths. They are not inquiries into how someone died or who is to blame.

We will publish the reports and findings of these reviews as they become available.
