Developing a new Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy for Birmingham

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone and touches the lives, directly and indirectly, of many people in Birmingham.  The impact of domestic abuse can cause serious and long-term harm to individuals, children and families, and communities.

We aspire for Birmingham to be a City where everyone lives free from domestic abuse.  Birmingham City Council and our strategic partners from across Health, Criminal Justice and the Voluntary Sector would welcome your views about how we can best achieve our vision together.

The consultation document and questions outline our plans to tackle domestic abuse and gives you an opportunity to tell us what you think. There are six questions that we would like you to respond to but we also welcome any other comments you might wish to make in relation to tackling domestic abuse in Birmingham.

The consultation runs until Friday 6 January 2017 so we hope to hear from you within this period.

The Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy Consultation Questions can be completed online at https://www.birminghambeheard.org.uk or emailed topreventDA@birmingham.gov.uk.  Alternatively a paper copy of the questionnaire can be completed and posted to Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy Consultation, Freepost RSYS-HKBC-XBLA, PO Box 16465, Birmingham, B2 2DG. No stamp required.

There is also an opportunity to have your say at one of our consultation workshop events.  These workshops will focus on discussing the key themes set out in the strategy and give the opportunity to share your views.
