This is the final report of work undertaken by TIHR on domestic violence partnerships on behalf of the Local Government Association (LGA).
We were commissioned by the LGA to study their Programme of Engagement and Support to local domestic violence partnerships between February and May 2005.
The aim was to produce a report highlighting implications, lessons and practical issues for other authorities and partnerships to share. Although the partnerships in the programme were generally at an early stage of development, it was hoped that the lessons they learnt from setting up could help others embarking on this stage or reviewing their current arrangements. The accompanying check list aims to help local authorities, within partnerships, work effectively to do this.
