DAHA and Surviving Economic Abuse commissioned this report from the University of Bristol to draw on data collected as part of the ESRC-funded project, Justice, Inequality and Gender-Based Violence. The final briefing reveals the extent of domestic abuse for homeowners and private renters and their experiences with the criminal justice system.
DAHA co-founder Kelly Henderson authored this report with Safe Lives which discusses domestic abuse and its link to homelessness, with a particular focus on survivors of domestic abuse who are chronically homeless.
