• The Office for National Statistics reported there were an estimated 758,000 domestic abuse-related crimes reported in England and Wales from 2020 to 2021.  These figures only represent reported crimes, and the actual number of incidents is likely to be higher as many cases of domestic abuse go unreported.
  • According to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), in the year ending March 2021, there were 79,611 prosecutions for domestic abuse-related crimes in England and Wales. Of those prosecutions, 74,410 resulted in convictions, which is a conviction rate of 93.5%.
