Domestic Abuse Client Survey Form (ID #8501)
I have written this form and survey for people suffering from domestic abuse which impacts family and housing security and even homelessness and is part of a longer-term project to document your common issues and to redesign services from the feedback of those with lived experience. I have been both in these sorts of relationships and have even been homeless as a result, on many occasions. These questions are designed and split into areas which are the most common with regard to the issues.
By completing this you are agreeing to take part in the survey. All reports will be anonymous and strictly confidential with any personal data collected stripped out to protect your identity.
Advocacy Clients. This info is used to assist you with your casework and advocacy and will form part of a report which I will use to help with your specific issue. This is a fact find but out of this situation we can collectively share our experiences, as much as we feel comfortable with and these can help transform services for others in this position. Very much paying it forward!
Any question do let me know!
