Domestic Abuse Stakeholder Survey

Middlesbrough council is conducting a needs assessment  in relation to Domestic Abuse which will help inform the development of  strategy and influence how we commission Domestic Abuse services in the future.

Good commissioning begins with an understanding that stakeholders and specialist providers  have a breadth of expert knowledge and experience to draw on.  Therefore your involvement in this stage is very important.  To consult we have created  surveys which will help evidence stakeholders and specialist providers experience of working with commissioned services and identify what works well and potential areas for development/ gaps in provision.

The surveys forms part of a wider consultation plan which will involve specialist providers, commissioners and service users .
