Domestic abuse / violence and the family courts

We work as a unique collaboration between law, health, economics, human rights and domestic abuse support services to develop innovative cross-cutting research into the health impacts of legal / family court proceedings for mothers and children. We investigate this using a broad lens exploring individual and structural inequalities.
