Policy and research
CAADA’s goal is to transform the UK’s response to domestic abuse, so that victims are identified as early as possible and supported to live in safety. One of the ways we achieve this is by gathering evidence through research and evaluation and using this to shape policy and practice.
Find out about our policy work on important issues relating to domestic abuse, and how we use evidence from domestic abuse services to shape service provision.
CAADA Insights enables domestic abuse services to profile service users and evidence activity and outcomes. CAADA published the first findings of this data, involving over 2,500 victim cases, in our 2012 national dataset report.
CAADA is the only organisation to regularly collect data on high risk domestic abuse cases from over 250 Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARACs) in the UK. We analyse this national data set and use it to influence national MARAC policy. Read more about our MARAC data analysis.
Find out about Themis, our three year research project which explores the outcomes for victims of IDVA services co-located in hospitals.
