May I invite you to please consider responding to the Government
consultation online, there are two questions where you could help AAFDA
if you think we have been helpful to you. Here’s the link to access the
Q10. In the section called – Improving support services for all victims
of domestic abuse and their children – there is a box called ‘Other’
which allows you to put in words of your own typing. The question
probably relates to current victims of domestic abuse but I always think
that includes us because we are bound up in it. So we need services too
and specialist and expert advocacy is a service and it can help get
Q63. In the section called – Learning from Domestic Homicide Reviews –
you can type in here anything you wish. Even though the question relates
to learning from DHRs, specialist and expert advocacy for families would
make learning from DHRs more likely to happen.
Thank you for considering this. AAFDA will be very grateful.
