Domestic homicide reviews (DHR) must be carried out when someone dies because of an incident of domestic abuse. This is a legal requirement.

The Safer and Stronger Communities and Strategic Partnership (SSCSP) is responsible for these reviews in South Gloucestershire.

Purpose of the review

The purpose of a DHR is to make sure that all the organisations involved in a case are responding appropriately to abuse victims and are working to an action plan.

The SSCSP also make recommendations to improve the response to domestic abuse cases in future.
