People who have come through domestic abuse in South Holland and Lincolnshire are being asked to give their views on the county’s support services.

The “Escaping Domestic Abuse” survey has been running online for a number of years and allows users of the service to give feedback, anonymously, on the help and support they have received.

It also enables people to suggest improvements, including the “Friends, Family, Colleagues” campaign to help people spot the warning signs for domestic abuse and know how to support them.

Karen Shooter, Lincolnshire’s domestic abuse manager, said: “We are beginning to put together our Domestic Abuse Strategy which will run until 2020 and feedback is a really valuable part of helping to shape the services available in Lincolnshire.

“We have received a significant number of responses from women and men who have been abused, including victims in same-sex relationships or people who were abused by other family members, rather than a partner or ex-partner.

“I would really like to thank everyone who took the time to fill in our survivor survey and I would encourage as many people as possible to follow their lead, particularly if they have been affected by domestic abuse more recently.”
