1989"What Support?" An Exploratory Study of Council Policy and Practice and Local Support Services in the Area of Domestic Violence within Hammersmith and Fulham
This is the report of an eight-month study of the services available to women who experience domestic violence in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. By way of a literature review, and questionnaires and interviews completed by workers in both the statutory and voluntary sectors and women who have experienced domestic violence themselves, this research sought to uncover the current policy and practice of agencies dealing with the issue of domestic violence both in the statutory and voluntary sector - including their service provision, recognition, perceptions, skills, referral practices and training needs; chart the inter-relationships between these statutory and voluntary agencies; investigate the help-seeking strategies of women who are experiencing/have experienced domestic violence, and make recommendations for improved service delivery in this area in the future.
