Response to ‘Jonathan’ Domestic Homicide Review (DHR)
The Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership (KBSP) has today (27 February 2020) published a review commissioned following the tragic death of Jonathan (pseudonym). The Partnership wishes to extend their sympathy to Jonathan’s family and friends and is very grateful to those who have contributed information to this review.
The review highlighted the need to continue to work at a local and national level to change the attitudes to male victims of domestic abuse, and to improve the services available.
