The South Cambridgeshire Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) is commissioning a Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) regarding the death of an elderly gentleman who took his own life on 8 May 2018.
The CDRP seeks expressions of interest to undertake a review on its behalf from a suitably qualified, experienced, independent and sensitive author; to be completed by end March 2019. This deadline is in line with Home Office guidance. However, timescales are flexible where an extension is agreed between all parties, including the Home Office. Fees will remain fixed should an extension be agreed.
In particular, the author should have a sound understanding of the issues around the Safeguarding of vulnerable adults and of the support available to older people through Adult Social Care. The CDRP has been made aware of circumstances that suggest Domestic Abuse (DA) and carer responsibilities played a part in this case, and so the author should be knowledgeable on these topics and identify any cause for concern.
The author will receive a briefing from the CDRP and will be asked to work to agreed timescales and delivery dates and to produce a meaningful and specific set of recommendations which can inform practice and procedure.
