An economic review of domestic violence services in Cheshire

What is the need?

Cheshire County Council (as was) wished to better understand the economic case for investing in domestic violence services.

What are we doing?

PERU undertook a short review of the evidence on the impact of domestic violence services, collected data on the economic cost of delivering the particular service under review and calculated the break-even point for the service to be cost effective.

What were the outcomes?

A report was produced for Cheshire County Council.

What are the timescales?

The work was completed in 2009.
