Our Impact Reports
Impact report 2022-23
Our Impact Report 2022-23 showcases the progress of our work - along with our partners – on the path to achieve our vision of ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.
All the work we do is created and delivered with our partners – staff, survivors, Pioneers and AV panel, trustees, our Scottish advisory group, associates, frontline workers, public services, domestic abuse and violence against women and girls sector agencies, corporate organisations and our many valued supporters.
Our understanding of how harming behaviour begins has continued to grow through our Safe Young Lives programme. This has included publication of new research exploring relationship and sex education in English secondary schools, and our latest discovery report, Verge of Harming, which outlines how and why harmful behaviour can start among young people.
To help us identify and stop harmful behaviour we secured further funding for our Drive partnership with Respect and Social Finance. The Drive team continue to build momentum with the Restart project to more closely involve housing and social care professionals in responding to perpetrators of abuse.
Increasing safety for all those at risk remains fundamental to everything we do. In the spring, we launched our first report on whole family working at local level, which contains a series of recommendations aimed at local areas and national policymakers.
We have continued to work with survivors to achieve change. Their experience led us to develop our new training for family lawyers, designed to help their understanding and improve experiences for adults and children in the Family Court.
We thank every single person and organisation who has made progress possible and who believes that one day we will be free from domestic abuse and its devastating impact.
