Your opportunity to help us develop strategies and services to prevent and respond to Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

We particularly value the experiences and opinions of those who are experts from their own experience and are committed to delivering services that fit the needs of people rather than making people fit into our services or making assumptions that we have got everything right. We would like to hear the views of anyone in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly that has experienced domestic abuse and professionals who have provided support in any capacity. We would also welcome the views of community groups and leaders who have an interest.

The information that you share will be used to inform our 2022-25 Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Strategies and the development of future services.

You can provide feedback on our strategies and proposals and share your experiences and views under the 'survey' tab below.

You can also contact the Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Team to share your views and express interest in being involved in future consultations via dasv@cornwall.gov.uk. We would particularly like to speak to people from under-represented groups and those who have experienced barriers to getting support. Information for particpants and a breifing for partner agencies can be found in the 'document' section.

If you would like to know more about domestic abuse and sexual violence and the services available for support we have added these resources under Documents and Important Links.

  • We are inviting people to take part in conversations about lived experience of domestic abuse and sexual violence.  

    We are determined to ensure that all our services, strategies and community projects are delivered from a person-centred, needs-led and trauma informed approach. The only way to truly achieve this is to seek out and listen to the views of people impacted by domestic abuse, sexual violence and sexual abuse in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

    We want to understand more about people’s experiences of domestic abuse and sexual violence by hearing the voices of adults, children and young people and the staff who work with them.  This will help us work better together to provide the support that people want and need and bring the reality of domestic abuse and its impact out of the shadows, reducing stigma, stereotypes and myths. 

    We want to hear from as many people as possible but understand that not everyone is comfortable having a direct conversation about such a difficult experience in their lives. If you would like to contribute to this project and would rather do so online, you can complete our survey.  If you would feel more comfortable with emailing us your experience you can do this via dasv@cornwall.gov.uk

    You can remain anonymous and your responses are not visible to others visiting this site, however we may use quotes from the responses we receive when we evaluate the project and publish our Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Strategy,  so please be mindful of your own safety when sharing your experiences and views.  We will never publish anything that we believe may put someone at risk of harm.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Please complete our short survey to give your views on our Strategic Priorities for Safe Accommodation for those who are experiencing domestic abuse . This survey will close at 5pm on 28/01/2022.  Please answer as many questions as you can and skip those that you cannot or do not wish to answer. If you include comments in your responses please be mindful of your own and others safety and please do not include names of anyone involved in your situation.  We want to know if we have identified the right priorities and so would suggest that you read the whole document (see Documents).  In the document we use the term 'protected characteristics' which refers to:

    • Age
    • Disability
    • Gender reassignment
    • Marriage or civil partnership
    • Pregnancy and maternity
    • Race
    • Religion or belief
    • Sex
    • Sexual orientation

    And 'multiple vulnerabilities' refers to those who have more than one factor or adversity that impacts on their wellbeing, such as drugs and alcohol, mental health, homelessness, in addition to domestic abuse and/or sexual violence. 

    We know that when you are experiencing domestic abuse, having a safe place to live is important in reducing risk and and supporting recovery. 

    Safer Cornwall is committed to ensuring support is available to everyone who needs access to safe accommodation for domestic abuse. The Strategic Priorities for Safe Accommodation document is one part of a wider Safer Cornwall Domestic Abuse Strategy and sets out how Cornwall Council will respond to its statutory duty under Part 4 of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 - to provide support to victim survivors of Domestic Abuse (DA) and their children in safe accommodation.  

    We will use the information you provide to inform the Safer Cornwall Domestic Abuse Strategy and our decisions about how we spend funding and the design of future services.  The results of this survey will be published on the Lets Talk and Safer Cornwall websites and shared with individuals within the Safer Cornwall Partnership. Individuals will not be able to be identified from the results.
