Serious case reviews, special measures, reviews of services, domestic homicide reviews… these are terms which are catching my eye in the news all too often. These terms scream ‘serious service failure’, but is that a fair reflection on the ways agencies are working together to safeguard people in their homes? This week is Domestic Abuse Awareness Week (25-29 November), and it puts the focus on how we best tackle the issue. In my view, multiple agencies like local authorities, the police and housing providers like Curo must work together effectively to safeguard every individual in our communities.
