This project aims to examine the processes of child contact proceedings, particularly child welfare hearings, and their interaction with criminal proceedings in the context of domestic abuse. The information collected and analysed will provide high quality evidence about the current justice system and produce policy and practice recommendations to inform debates about how to address child contact when there has been domestic abuse in Scotland and more widely.
