The Home Office has launched a public consultation “Transforming the response to domestic abuse.”
Ending domestic abuse is a key priority for the Home Office and partners and in order to achieve this, a key priority is to build a society that has zero tolerance and actively empowers victims, communities and professionals to confront and challenge it. Victims should feel supported, both to seek help and to rebuild their lives.
The consultation responses will shape the response to domestic abuse at every stage, from prevention through to rehabilitation.
As well as seeking the views of professionals across policing, criminal justice, health, welfare, education and local authorities who deal with domestic abuse, the views of the public are also encouraged too – those who have been affected by domestic abuse or knows of someone who has.
Domestic abuse is not just physical abuse – it can be psychological, sexual, emotional or economic. People should never feel scared, intimidated or controlled in a relationship. Find out more about how you can help shape the government’s response to domestic abuse here.
You can just complete the sections of the survey that are relevant to you.
The consultation closes on 31 May 2018.
