Domestic abuse is a major public health and clinical concern which is experienced by 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in England during their lifetime. The term ‘domestic abuse’ refers to a continuum of behaviour and can be physical, sexual, psychological, or financial, and almost always involves coercive control. We know that 2 women a week in the UK are killed by their partner or ex-partner, and another 2 women a week die by suicide in an attempt to escape the abuse. Demand on domestic abuse helplines increased by 22% in the year ending March 2021, although this does not necessarily indicate a rise in victim numbers and could instead highlight an increase in abuse severity and a lack of available coping mechanisms and specialised support. Oasis Domestic Abuse Service is a charity set up to help people experiencing domestic abuse in Kent. It opened it’s first refuge in 1994, and offers services to adults and children both in refuge and in the community across East Kent, Medway and North Kent. Services include refuge and safe accommodation, group programmes, counselling, mentoring and training for professionals. Oasis delivers the Understanding Trauma Programme to survivors of domestic abuse who are now in a place of recovery, using trained facilitators experienced in working with trauma-informed principles. There is a real gap in service provision in this area in the UK. This evaluation aimed to examine the impact of the Understanding Trauma Programme over the pilot of this service.
