Deadline 31st May
The government has launched a consultation on domestic abuse, seeking new laws and stronger powers to protect and support survivors.
Domestic abuse comes in many forms, shattering the lives of victims and their families, and in recognition of this the government has put forward proposals for new laws which would transform our approach to this terrible crime.
The consultation, which was launched on Thursday 8th March by the Prime Minister Theresa May, Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Justice Secretary David Gauke, will seek views on measures to be included in the government’s draft Domestic Abuse Bill.
To ensure they get this landmark legislation right they now want to hear from all those who have been affected by abuse, from survivors, frontline professionals, charities and the public, to gather views on how, together, they can best put a stop to it once and for all.
