Domestic Abuse Research Network (DARNet)

Welcome to the Domestic Abuse Research Network (DARNet)

The Domestic Abuse Research Network (DARNet) has been created to support knowledge exchange events, enable practitioners and academics to connect with current issues and research on domestic abuse in the region. This has the potential to lead to collaborative research projects and funding from other sources in the future.  The aim of the network is to be inclusive, drawing on expertise in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge. DARNet is currently based in the Suffolk Institute for Social and Economic Research (SISER).  

DARNet has been financially supported by the University of Suffolk, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Suffolk County Council, Economic and Social Research Council, and Language Acts and Worldmaking (Kings College London).

Aims and Objectives: 

  • Identify and develop key research priorities/areas, and collaborative research partnerships. 

  • Share high quality local, national and international research at relevant domestic abuse boards in the region. 

  • Support the development of research and evaluation capacity for voluntary organisations and statutory agencies 

  • Support the creation of an active virtual network where relevant knowledge is regularly shared and discussed. 

The network is open to anyone interested in domestic abuse issues and intersecting areas.
