Domestic Abuse Needs Assessment
As part of the duties arising out of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021, local authorities are required to conduct a needs assessment that specifically explores the level of local need for support services within safe accommodation for victims of domestic abuse and their children. Gloucestershire’s Domestic Abuse Local Partnership Board has chosen to widen the scope of its needs assessment to cover community based support as well. The needs assessment has informed development of the county’s Domestic Abuse Strategy 2021 – 2024 which can be found on the Glostakeastand website and will be refreshed on a three yearly basis.
The following Domestic Abuse Needs Assessment was produced in partnership between Gloucestershire Constabulary and Gloucestershire County Council.
