Research on domestic abuse and churches’ responses to it exists in North America, but not in the UK, except for a few small-scale studies on particular denominations or expressions of Christianity. Restored and Churches Together in Cumbria (CTiC) deliver training on domestic abuse and advocate for policy change, but need evidence of the scale of the problem to enable them to respond appropriately. This research provides much-needed evidence on domestic abuse at local-level, focusing on the county of Cumbria in north-west England.
