Fit For Purpose Policy
Over the past few years, Mums In Need has supported over 200 women who have suffered from emotional/psychological abuse (also known as coercive control). Through running our support services, the need for national policy changes became strikingly apparent. Coercive control is now recognised as a crime and yet when victims leave the abusive relationship, they are often left unsupported. We carried out interviews with our staff and the women who have used our support services. From this research, we have developed a set of policy recommendations which, if implemented, would drastically improve the support available to coercive control victims.
