Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence consultation

The Kent and Medway Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Executive has launched a public consultation process centred on their vision and strategy for preventing and reducing domestic abuse in Kent and Medway.

Kent Police will work in partnership with the Executive to meet the aims and objectives of the strategy and together we will ensure people experiencing abuse can access the help and services they need - when they need it.

The Executive needs your feedback and suggestions on the draft strategy which will be used to make any changes before the final version is published.

The consultation on the draft strategy will run from the 8 July until the 30 September 2019.
 
Please visit www.kent.gov.uk/domesticabusestrategy to view the draft strategy and respond to the consultation questions online. A draft Equality Impact Assessment is also available on the KCC website.
 

More on the strategy

Many different services and providers work to support families and individuals affected by domestic abuse.

The strategy will bring the work of partners together, working to the same objectives over Kent and Medway, enabling the Executive to deliver the strongest possible response and services.

The strategy discusses five key priorities:
  • Driving change together - emphasising the importance of promoting change through joint commitment, leadership and partnership working,
  • Prevention and early intervention - seeking to reduce the incidence of domestic abuse through effective preventative support,
  • Provision of services - having responsive and effective services for groups at risk of, or subject to domestic abuse,
  • Minimising harm - equality of access to all and supporting a person or family through longer term support needs,
  • Justice, recovery and ongoing protection - provision of effective, engaged, supportive, responsive and timely protection and justice.
Domestic abuse is a widespread crime which affects many people. Together we can better help those effected and reduce its impact.
