Domestic Abuse Services consultation

Reading Borough Council has launched a consultation regarding its Domestic Abuse Services – the closing date is 10 February 2017.

The council is seeking views from service users and other stakeholders to understand:

  • Local priorities for domestic abuse services and the rationale for priorities
  • The impact of reducing funding for local refuge provision including part of the specialist Asian provision
  • How they can best support people experiencing domestic abuse via services available outside of the refuge provision.

To take part in the consultation and have your say complete the online questionnaire at www.reading.gov.uk/domesticabuseconsultation.

In addition to seeking responses online the council will be holding a public meeting with service users and others who feel they are affected by this proposal at 9:30 am on Friday 10 February in Committee Room 4a at the Civic Offices.

If you would like to receive the questionnaire in hard copy or in a different format, please contact Lizzie Angove lizzie.angove@reading.gov.uk or on 0118 937 4772.
