Domestic abuse and sexual violence services

Closed 31 Oct 2021

Opened 23 Jun 2021


We gather feedback on the services for domestic abuse and sexual violence in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

If you have been in contact with the local services via a helpline, website or through a group, a course or one-to-one support such as counselling or befriending at any time in the past 18 months, your feedback would be very helpful.

The services are all contracted with United Against Violence and Abuse (UAVA), but you might know them as specific charities, organisations or services such as:

  • Brooks House Refuge, or other refuges
  • Freeva
  • Jenkins Centre
  • Living Without Abuse (LWA)
  • United Against Violence & Abuse (UAVA)
  • Women's Aid Leicestershire Ltd (WALL)

We welcome feedback on all types of services. These include the local helpline, refuges, independent advisors (IDVAs and ISVAs) counselling, befriending, support groups and help for children and young people.

If you're not sure which service(s) you dealt with, that's not a problem, please tell us about your experience anyway. We can use any details you give us.

If you need this survey in a different format, please contact us.

Why your views matter

It is vital that we hear and learn from your experience, as it can help us improve services for others in similar situations. We want to learn from any mistakes and celebrate what is going well. All responses will be collated and used to inform our understanding of current local services and how to improve them.

This short survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete.
