Professor Carolyn Hoyle has a new paper in International Review of Victimology, co-authored with Nicola Palmer of Kings College London. The paper - which can be found here -  reports on study of a Family Justice Centre in south London. The abstract is below:

The London Borough of Croydon, in the south of England, established, in December 2005, a Family Justice Centre (FJC) to respond in a flexible way to meet the varied needs of those abused in intimate relationships. The FJC brings together some 33 agencies under one roof. This article draws on a small, grounded pilot study of the Croydon FJC – the first study of a FJC in the UK - to consider if the co-location and cooperation of services to victims of domestic abuse has the potential to empower victims to make informed choices about their futures.
