Research and Development
Through research, training and education, and lobbying for legislative and societal change, Eaves works to eliminate all aspects of violence against women.
One of the most important aspects of research and development’s (R&D) work is to create an evidence base of trends or patterns in women’s experiences, by carrying out primary and secondary research, and gathering data from our frontline casework.
This is used to lobby, advocate and campaign for policy and legislative change which can prevent violence against women, or improve access to safety and justice for women experiencing, or at risk of, violence. It can also help us to identify innovative ways to address violence against women.
Our research and reports have proved influential in shaping policy. The R&D team works in coalition with women’s sector partners, providing support and networking opportunities to enable other women’s organisations – including smaller ones, or those with the fewest resources – to keep up-to-date with new legislations, best practice and developments in the field.
