National Domestic Abuse Survivors Survey - please share
5 January 2022
Domestic Abuse Commissioner (DAC) have launched a survey for victims and survivors of domestic abuse.
You may have now seen that Domestic Abuse Commissioner (DAC) have launched a survey for victims and survivors of domestic abuse, which asks about their experience in trying to access services where they live. This is a hugely important piece of work and will contribute to their national mapping work - which takes them one step closer to advocating for more support and ending the postcode lottery.
Over 1,000 people have responded so far, however they are keen to ensure that they get a good response from each area of England and Wales and from younger victims and survivors who are currently underrepresented. Please do share amongst your networks - a poster and leaflet with QR codes are available which may help with this.
It is open to anyone over the age of 16 in England and Wales who has accessed, tried to access, or considered accessing services in the last three years. It’s been translated into 13 languages including BSL and a version is also available in Easy Read, which you can find on the DAC website along with more information about the survey. The survey closes on Monday 31January.
