Set up by the Domestic Abuse Commissioner (DAC), VOICES is a virtual platform for victims and survivors of domestic abuse to stay connected to relevant policy, research, and practice development.

VOICES, the DAC survivor platform, aims to give victims and survivors opportunities to share their experience so they can influence change.

VOICES will circulate a newsletter with opportunities to share your voice with domestic abuse organisations, universities, and local and national government. It will also include updates on the Commissioner’s work and relevant news from across domestic abuse policy, practice and research.

A major strand of work for the Commissioner and her team, is focusing on how survivors experience the criminal justice system.

We have a very short online questionnaire which consists of only 3 questions and will take less than 5 minutes.

We want to hear from as many survivors as possible so we can have snapshot of what happens when survivors first ask the police for help. If you didn’t reach out to police for help, please still take the survey – we also want to understand why people don’t call the police. All responses will be completely anonymous – you will not be asked to provide any personal information that could identify you.

We have a webpage outlining our aims and current work within criminal justice system which you can access here.
