The Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Services consultation is open from Wednesday 8 December until Sunday 23 January 2022.
You can share your views on the proposals in the online survey. Please share the consultation so it can reach as many people as possible.
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 has made more funding available to Bristol to provide domestic and sexual violence services. The council currently spends £1,475,000 per year on these services; the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 will increase this to £2,180,000 spend per year. The council is proposing to use this additional funding to increase its provision of domestic and sexual violence services, to build on and improve how we provide these services.
The proposals the council are consulting on include new funding for local prevention and recovery services, additional funding for accommodation-based support, and joint commissioning of other domestic abuse services.
The proposed changes to domestic and sexual violence services in Bristol are outlined in the draft commissioning strategy, which is the subject of this consultation.
