Solihull launches surveys and takes first steps towards tackling domestic abuse


share close

Solihull Council has commissioned a Domestic Abuse Needs Assessment to understand the needs of people experiencing domestic abuse in Solihull. 

New legislation means local authorities have several new legal duties, including assessing the need for local accommodation-based domestic abuse support for all victims or their children, including those from outside the area.

Two online surveys go live today (Monday 12 July) – and Cabinet member for stronger and safer communities, Councillor Alison Rolf, called for as many people as possible to participate. 

Cllr Rolf said: “We have targeted surveys specifically to capture the views of both those with actual lived experience of domestic abuse and the professionals working to protect and support them. 

“People who have used the services can tell us what is good, what needs to be improved, and give us their ideas and suggestions.”

The assessment will be used to help develop services across the borough that better meet the needs of people who have experienced domestic abuse.

All responses will be anonymous, and the information collected will be used by Solihull Council to improve services.

The deadline for responses is 30 July 2021. Click the links below to access both surveys
