During the Covid-19 global public health crisis we have an added responsibility to reach out to those who are especially vulnerable – the women, the elderly, children, and men who suffer from domestic abuse. Many statutory and voluntary bodies have shown that they can adapt to meet the challenge. Their efforts should be recognised – and copied more widely. We hope that our summary of the best practice and our recommendations for improving operations can be of use to this sector, and to Government.
