About this Survey

The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 was passed on 29th April and gave Local Authorities statutory duties for commissioning Domestic Abuse support services for adults and children within safe accommodation.

We are in the process of a review into the accommodation needs of male survivors of Domestic Abuse including those with Protected Characteristics, additional and / or multiple complex needs, or whose support needs cannot be properly met within non-specialist domestic abuse safe accommodation.

This piece of work has been commissioned by Nottinghamshire County Council but we are also looking to take into consideration the views on men outside of Nottinghamshire. 
In terms of current data on the needs of men with protected characteristics we have an incomplete picture. This survey will contribute to our understanding of need. 
The review should ascertain what is provided locally, gaps in provision and any barriers to access to safe accommodation and support for men. Most importantly it should also make clear recommendations on what the needs of survivors are, taking into account any relevant national best practice.
Protected Characteristics (Equality Act 2010) cover age, disability, gender, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
Please note that the term man/men will be used throughout this survey to represent men, trans feminine and non-binary people.
