Birmingham Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy 2024-29

Closes 6 Dec 2023

Opened 25 Oct 2023

Overview

Birmingham City Council is consulting with citizens on the city’s draft Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy 2024+. This draft strategy sets out the key priorities and actions for how we, with agencies across the city, will work together to tackle domestic abuse over the next five years.

Domestic abuse is abuse in a personal relationship, such as from a partner, ex-partner or a family member. It can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, controlling behaviour (e.g., telling you what to wear, where you can go), financial abuse (e.g., not letting you have money, stopping you from working), and spiritual abuse (e.g., using religious texts to control).

More information can be found here.

Why your views matter

We are asking for your views to ensure we have identified the right priorities and actions for this bold and ambitious strategy for Birmingham.

The online survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and is completely confidential, so your information will not be shared, and you will not be contacted about your answers.

But if you would like to discuss this consultation with us or you would like to submit consultation responses to us by email, please contact: DAteam@birmingham.gov.uk
