Report on Domestic Homicide Review
The meeting spent an hour discussing the outcome of Solihull’s first domestic homicide review. None of the discussion can be publicly recorded as the review has not yet been made public.
There were lessons to be learnt for promoting an understanding of domestic violence at a society level and particularly within the business community.
There was a long discussion about Safer Solihull’s budget and the pressures upon it. The Board has been spending reserves to make up for cuts from elsewhere and to maintain services.
