Our credentials AAFDA helped design the model used for these reviews and wrote some of the statutory guidance. We sit on the national panel that quality assures these reviews and the CEO is the only Home Office appointed reader (Readers provide detailed assessments to panel members) that also sits on this panel. We have quality assured over 450 of these reviews and the CEO has almost certainly assessed more DHRs than anyone else in England and Wales. All AAFDA caseworkers have expert knowledge of domestic abuse The CEO has been to the USA three times to talk and learn about homicide reviews. He has also been to Portugal, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to help them with these reviews. We’ve represented families or given others advice in well over 100 Domestic Homicide Reviews in the last four years. We champion that families be given the opportunity to be integral to these reviews rather than just be involved. We ensured the government’s official guidance was changed to help families achieve this (Paragraph 23). We have a unique perspective as we have direct experience of domestic homicide. The CEO has been through the Pemberton Domestic Homicide Review described by world authority Professor Neil Websdale as a “Gold Standard”. We are regularly consulted by the Home Office, Chairs of these reviews, Community Safer Partnerships and other organisations and professionals.
