Jacobs acts to ensure domestic homicide review recommendations are carried out

Nicole Jacobs, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales, is launching a domestic homicide oversight scheme to hold public bodies and national government to account so they take steps to prevent future deaths.

“I want to see cross-governmental leadership to ensure that all agencies, from health to children’s services, make ending domestic homicide a priority,” she said.

“Domestic homicide reviews have been gathering vital learning to prevent future deaths since 2011. Until now, there has been no mechanism to ensure the changes these important reviews call for are happening at a regional and national level. Too often, this leads to stagnation and the vital changes to save lives are not made,” she stated.

Her initiative follows research into the reviews by her agency and Manchester Metropolitan University.
