My Churchill Fellowship
In 2019 I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. Churchill Fellowships are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand professional and personal horizons by travelling abroad for up to 8 weeks, researching innovative practice.
During my Churchill Fellowship, I investigated international approaches to domestic / family violence death reviews. In England and Wales, the review process (known as a ‘Domestic Homicide Review’) was only introduced in 2011. During my travels, I explored and compared different approaches to reviews in the United States, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.
My Fellowship report, titled 'Reviewing domestic homicide - international practice and perspectives' was published in June 2020.
