Multi-agency safeguarding and domestic abuse: CASPAR briefing

Publication date October 2022

In September 2022, the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel for England published its key findings from a thematic analysis of rapid reviews and local child safeguarding practice reviews where domestic abuse featured. It also included findings from a literature review of recent research into child protection and domestic abuse.

This CASPAR briefing summarises the key findings and recommendations from the Panel briefing around:

  • the effectiveness of multi-agency practice in safeguarding children where domestic abuse has contributed to serious incidents
  • what works in response to protecting children from domestic abuse
  • how services and practice might be improved to support children as victims of domestic abuse.
