Research shows that global majority victims are overrepresented in domestic homicides, but professionals often have a lack of understanding of the barriers inhibiting these victims' help seeking. This project will create a robust DHR mentoring programme with a focus on understanding the needs and barriers faced by global majority women. As a pilot, 4 women from the global majority by and for VAWG agencies will be recruited on this programme and become DHR Chairs. They will receive full training and support to develop their skills, whilst bringing their knowledge and expertise into the DHR sector. The organizations where the mentees are located with have an engagement programme, including a honorarium for professional time
MARAC & Harmful Practices Toolkit:
This research will explore whether the MARAC model works effectively for victims/ survivors of harmful practices, and we will produce a toolkit to support MARACs to improve practice. By and for agencies, as well as MARAC Co-ordinators will inform this work via focus groups and interviews. Training will be offered to MARAC Co-ordinators and Chairs on the toolkit and harmful practices more generally.
