A formula for domestic abuse services in England – developing an ETHICAL response to domestic violence against women. Paper 1: Type and Capacity of services in England

Research output: Working paper


This technical paper provides further detail on the methodology towards developing a formula for provision of domestic abuse services in England. The project aims to underpin an ETHICAL response, highlighting seven key elements of an effective service provision: Eligibility, Type, Holistic, Independence, Capacity, Accessibility, Location. The elements of service provision characterised as Eligibility, Holistic, Independence, Accessibility are based on principles, and are evidence-based from past learning, research literature, human rights law, and experience of decades of domestic abuse service provision. In terms of this research, these are discussed in other publications available via https://www.womensjourneyscapes.net/ . The technical papers from this research are focused on the evidence base from quantitative data analysis for only three of these elements of service provision: Type, Capacity and Location. This technical paper is on Type and Capacity of services in England. A separate technical paper is on the Location of services in England.
