Domestic Abuse Commissioner Survey for Domestic Abuse survivors

Friday, January 28th, 2022

From The Domestic Abuse Commissioner’s website (https://domesticabusecommissioner.uk/):

Have you been subject to domestic abuse, live in England and Wales, and used support services or thought about getting support in the past three years?

If so, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner wants to hear from you about your experiences, as part of her national mapping work. This is the first step towards ending the ‘postcode lottery’ in the provision of services that support victims, survivors and their children, and is a critical opportunity to feed into this important work.

The survey should take you 15 – 25 minutes and will be open until 11.59 on 14th February 2022.

The survey is anonymous and will not ask you about your experiences of abuse, but about what help you wanted to receive and how easy or difficult it was to get this help. Please note you must also be over 16 to take part.

Information is available in the survey on how to cover your tracks online, and you might want to think about where you can access the survey privately and safely.

Take the survey by following this link: https://bit.ly/3GhT2yN


Note: Buckinghamshire Council held its own survey in October 2021, on its draft strategy (see: https://www.csb-forum.org/buckinghamshire-council-domestic-abuse-strategy-survey/).

Under the Domestic Abuse Bill, which became Law in April 2021, Tier One authorities such as Buckinghamshire Council must prepare and publish a local strategy based on a robust needs assessment.
