We were very excited to launch a Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) Network in the Spring of 2021 to help raise the standard of DHRs nationally. Our chief goal is to create a consistently high standard of DHRs and offer resources to support the key professionals involved.

Who is it for?

The DHR Network is primarily for Community Safety Partnerships (CSP) and Independent Chairs, but we are open to views about who else might benefit from membership.

What are the benefits of joining?

There are two levels of membership – Full (usually paid for) and Associate (free).

The free benefits you receive as an associate member are:

  • Contacts and networking with your peers in other areas via the DHR Network Discussion Forum.
  • Contacts and networking with other professionals with a role or interest in work via the DHR Network Discussion Forum.
  • Quarterly e-bulletins with news and updates.

In addition to the benefits above, full members also have access to:

  • A Directory of Independent Chairs.
  • Commissioning alerts when a Community Safety Partnership is looking for an Independent Chair for a new DHR.
  • Networking events.
  • Resources online –we are working on a repository and welcome contributions from our knowledgeable and informed members.
  • Focus groups looking at professional standards around the Independent Chair role. This is a longer term piece of work, which may depend on funding and the emerging policy landscape, but it is a conversation we are committed to having as part of the aims of the network –to raise the standard of DHRs.
