The Domestic Abuse Prevention team consulted on Birmingham’s new strategy at the end of 2023, and the full draft is now available! This important strategy will shape how partners across the city tackle domestic abuse, support survivors and hold perpetrators to account. 

 

Domestic abuse (DA) is a huge issue both nationally and locally in Birmingham. It is the third highest reason for homelessness presentations, second highest reason for contacting Birmingham Children’s Trust, and DA crimes reported to the police have more than doubled in the past 4 years. 

 

We have just launched a 10-week public consultation and we need both staff and citizens to share their views before the strategy is finalised!  

 

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

 

We really value your input to help shape Birmingham’s strategy to ensure it is bold, ambitious and right for the city. 

 

To discuss the consultation or strategy with us, or submit responses by email, please get in touch at [email protected] 

Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, and we know you may know someone, or have experienced it yourself – there are specialist services available to help and support.
