Manchester City Council Launches Multi Agency Domestic Abuse Toolkit

This Multi-Agency Toolkit is intended for all frontline agencies who work with people who may be experiencing domestic violence and abuse. The toolkit was developed in response to the Homelessness Review 2013 which found that Domestic Abuse remains a major cause of homelessness in the city, with large numbers presenting and being accepted as homeless. In 2012/13, 37% of all households accepted as homeless were homeless because of domestic abuse, in comparison to the national average of 12%.
