The programmes usually involve an individual assessment followed by group work over a set period of time.

Violence against women and girls VAWG is abuse that is targeted at women or girls because of their gender and it affects women and girls disproportionately but men can be abused too. It is important that VAWG is not seen as a series of incidents or assaults which a woman or girl experiences, but as a pattern of violent or controlling behaviour that seeks to achieve power and control over them.
VAWG has a very big impact on the physical safety, health and emotional well-being of individuals, and impacts on families, children and the community as a whole. Abuse can happen to anyone regardless of their economic status, gender, religion, ethnicity, age.

The Home Office has published guidance on when we need to set up a domestic homicide review and how to do it. This is explained on the Home Office website. Domestic homicide reviews are not inquiries into how the victim died or into who is responsible. The purpose of a domestic homicide review DHR is to understand where there are lessons to be learned and make recommendations to prevent future homicides.
When a homicide takes place in Waltham Forest, the police will immediately inform the Chair of the Community Safety Partnership. The Community Safety Partnership will decide whether a DHR will take place, and if so, appoint an independent chair and report writer.
All of the information shared from the review is confidential until it has been approved by the Home Office and then published. Family members, friends and colleagues of the victim are important to the DHR process. The independent chair will aim to make contact with friends and family, to enable them to inform the review and build a complete view of the victim. This report is for the publication of the domestic homicide review for Tekia not his real name. This was the first domestic homicide review in Waltham Forest following the implementation of the statutory guidelines in April This report was sent to the Home Office for approval in September In December we heard back that the report has been approved through the Quality Assurance panel.
The DHR panel wishes to express its condolences to the children, family members and friends. May he rest in peace.

It includes all forms of sexual acts including rape, sexual assault, sexual touching, sexual harassment, sexting or threats of sexual violence. Sexual violence is never your fault, no matter what you were wearing, who you were with, where you went or how much you had been drinking.
No, most victims of sexual violence experience it from someone they know. Most studies have found that between 85 to 90 per cent of people knew their attacker. No one is to blame for sexual assault except the perpetrator. Freedom means that you have not been coerced or forced to make the choice to have sex and capacity means that you have the mental and physical ability to say yes. If any of these are proved by the prosecution to be present at the time of the assault then a defendant will need to plead guilty.
