Briefing: Alcohol and domestic abuse in the context of Covid-19 restrictions

In the wake of this global pandemic, figures already show an increase in domestic abuse reports around the world1 2. Lockdown measures require people to stay at home, even when that home may not be a safe place for them. This briefing offers some considerations relating to alcohol and domestic violence during the restrictions placed on households as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

How is domestic abuse related to alcohol use? Alcohol (and other drugs) do not cause domestic abuse. However, both perpetrators and victims of domestic abuse may drink alcohol. Research (Gadd et al., 2019; Graham et al., 2011) shows that alcohol can:

 increase the risk of perpetrating domestic abuse

 increase the risk of being a victim of domestic abuse

 increase the severity of domestic abuse
