Voice encourages victims of domestic abuse to help improve future services

Voice is encouraging anyone who has been the victim of domestic abuse in the previous three years to help shape future support services by completing a survey designed by the Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales.

The Commissioner, Nicole Jacobs, has promised to use feedback from the survey to work with national and local governments to ensure that adequate support services are available for victims of domestic abuse across the country, regardless of location or any specialist needs.

The survey, which is available in 14 languages, can be accessed here: https://www.homeofficesurveys.homeoffice.gov.uk/s/DAC-Independent-Survey/

The Commissioner is keen to hear from victims and survivors of all backgrounds, including women, men, those from black and minority communities, deaf and disabled persons, migrant victims and LGBT+ victims.

It is hoped that by better understanding domestic abuse support across the UK, services can be improved by filling in any current gaps in provision.
