Today, on International Women’s Day, the Government has opened its consultation on the Domestic Abuse Bill to the public.
The consultation seeks to gather views on the measures set out in the Queen’s speech, in addition to views on other steps the Government can take forward through future domestic abuse legislation.

We at UK SAYS NO MORE welcome the Domestic Abuse Bill and see this as an important opportunity to have a meaningful conversation about what survivors of abuse tell us they need. It is imperative that survivor’s voices and the voices of their children are heard.

The Domestic Abuse Bill is a step toward of ensuring we are meeting the needs of survivors of domestic abuse, and it is really pleased to see a key focus on prevention. Prevention, through education, awareness raising and the sharing of knowledge and good practice are essential in our united effort to effectively tackle domestic abuse in the UK.

We hope this consultation spurs a national conversation about preventing and tackling domestic abuse, and we look forward to joining this conversation and seeing the responses from survivors and professionals alike.

From gov.uk:

This consultation seeks to address domestic abuse at every stage from prevention through to rehabilitation. It references the connections and provisions of cross-sector agencies and departments and reinforces the Government’s aim to make domestic abuse everyone’s business.

By consulting we aim to harness the knowledge and expertise of victims and survivors, support organisations and research experts. We are also interested in the views of professionals across policing, criminal justice, health, welfare, education and local authorities who deal with these issues everyday.
