The current UK Government defines domestic abuse as “any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to psychological, physical, sexual, financial, emotional.

Central Bedfordshire Council is asking people to share their experiences of domestic abuse through a short survey – the feedback will help the Council think about how to improve services.

The survey is completely anonymous and will take no more than ten minutes.

So, if you’re aged 16 or over, have experienced domestic abuse or know someone that has; or if you’re concerned about your behaviour towards your partner – they want your views.

You have until Friday, 31 May 2019 to complete the survey.
