Unpaid carers living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are being invited to complete an anonymous survey about their experiences of domestic abuse, and how support and services can be improved for survivors.
The survey is also open to unpaid carers in the county who have not experienced domestic abuse, who would like to share their thoughts and suggestions for improving support.
The survey is completely anonymous – there are no requirements to give any personal identifying information and any comments or suggestions made are entirely confidential.
The survey is being carried out by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Partnership, who are working with partner organisations including Caring Together, Healthwatch, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care System – as well as colleagues in Adult Social Care and Safeguarding – to improve the support available to unpaid (family) carers who are experiencing domestic abuse from the person they are caring for.
The survey is available at www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WVCYQY/ and will be open until Sunday 13 August 2023.
(The survey has been given approval by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Research Governance Framework).
