Impact: Awareness and understanding, Attitudes and behaviours, Society and culture


Tipton’s research investigated interpreter mediation for victims of domestic abuse with limited English proficiency in police and charitable support service settings. This programme of research resulted in a series of impacts: a) design and implementation of staff training and development in a range of services on a local and national level; b) construction and dissemination of evidence based guidelines for interpreters working with police and victim support services; c) improved provisions for service users through designing and delivering training for professional and volunteer interpreters working for charities whose focus is victims of domestic violence. The research has facilitated impact beyond the life-cycle of the initial research, bringing about changes that will provide long-term benefits to charities, police, and service users.
