Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Consultation (MoJ)
Domestic abuse impacts on victims' everyday lives and can have devastating consequences. The Ministry of Justice wants to find out how best to support all of those affected. The government consultation therefore sought views on what steps the
government should take to raise awareness, support victims, and ensure
perpetrators are stopped.
We took into consideration experiences of victims of abuse who contact our national Muslim Women's Network Helpline and responded to the consultation via an online questionnaire. However, we have summarised our responses in the report that can be downloaded above.
Some of our key recommendations included:
