Domestic violence is a serious public health issue. If you are a professional in a statutory or voluntary organisation, you have a vital role to play in ensuring women and children who are affected by abuse get appropriate support and information.
DV is one of the major crime and disorder challenges that Birmingham faces.
With 1 in 4 women experiencing DV at some point in their lives, it is highly likely that large proportions of your service users have been or are being affected by this issue. It has enormous devastating personal consequences for women and children.
DV is reported to cost £143 per head of the population per annum. In Birmingham this would equate to £97 million.
