Help tackle domestic abuse

Your views needed to help tackle domestic abuse in Norfolk

A survey has been launched by the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership (NCCSP) asking for people's views of domestic abuse, to   help improve services for victims in Norfolk.

The county averages three domestic homicides a year - and one in four women and one in six men experience domestic abuse.
In more than half of domestic abuse calls that Norfolk Constabulary respond to, there are children present or in the next room. 

NCCSP is asking members of the public to complete a 10-minute online survey on the subject to help meet the needs of people who experience domestic abuse.

All information collected will be kept in the strictest confidence and used for research purposes only.

It will not be possible to identify any particular individual in the research findings.

Laura McGillivray, Chairman of NCCSP and Norfolk Domestic Abuse change programme board, said: "Please help us and others who are suffering.


"It is so important that all partners make it easier for people experiencing domestic abuse to know who to approach for help and to feel confident doing so.

"The information from the online surveys will help us develop services and information, so that we get it right for families in Norfolk.

"Thank you for your support and help."
