Frank Mullane MBE

Frank is the CEO of Advocacy After Fatal Domestic Abuse (AAFDA). Founded in 2008, AAFDA is a centre of excellence for reviews after domestic homicide and for specialist peer support. Frank helped ensure Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) became law, and continues to work closely with the Home Office to enhance the methodology. From its inception in 2011, AAFDA has been a member of the national panel that quality assures DHRs and Frank is a Home Office appointed reader. Since 2011, Frank has assessed c.650 of these reviews. He is a Home Office accredited Chair for DHRs and trains others to undertake them. Frank is a member of the national Victims’ Panel chaired by the Justice Minister and was on the assessment panel for the recruitment of the first ever (Designate) Domestic Abuse Commissioner.

He is an author and has developed a model for helping families to be integral to reviews after domestic homicide, thought to be unique in the world. He is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Gloucestershire and gave a keynote speech at the third European conference on domestic abuse in Oslo in September 2019.

Frank’s sister Julia and nephew William Pemberton were murdered in 2003.
