DHR Report and action plan

A Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) is a review of the death of a person, aged 16 or over, where the death has, or might have, resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by:

  • a person they were related to, or who they had an intimate personal relationship with
  • a member of their own household

The purpose of a DHR is to understand where there are lessons to be learned and to make an action plan to prevent other homicides.

We carry out our reviews using Home Office guidance: 

South Cumbria CSP Domestic Homicide Reviews: Domestic homicide reviews: statutory guidance - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) 

There has been one domestic homicide review and report in South Cumbria the details of which are published in full here:
