NE Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Safer Accommodation Strategy

Deadline 13th December 2021

Sent on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council:

In April 2021, the Government said a grant of £125 million should be paid to local authorities, to enable delivery of the new statutory duty within the Domestic Abuse Act 2021.

It is important that a local strategy is developed, in partnership, to understand how we will meet this new duty, and to develop a plan of improvements for victims of domestic abuse and their children.

We would like your views and comments to help inform this strategy and the next steps. Our survey is designed to walk you through the key aspects of the strategy. You can complete our Domestic abuse safer accommodation strategy survey- external site .

If you would prefer, you can view the draft strategy on the Safer NEL website: Draft Domestic Abuse Safer Accommodation Strategy- external site 

Paper copies can be provided on request by calling 01472 324380.

Domestic Abuse – Safer Accommodation Duty Survey Link

Sent on behalf of Helen Cordell, Domestic Abuse Coordinator, North East Lincolnshire

We recently held a discussion with local domestic abuse service provider about the Safer Accommodation Duty, where they shared their views about the opportunities they feel we could explore as part of the process to develop a local offer. I’ve attached a copy of the presentation, which includes a link to the detailed information on the new Domestic Abuse Act and the new duty. 

Following this, we are really keen to seek the views and experiences of wider services, teams and practitioners across the whole of the partnership. It’s crucial that we understand the needs of those affected by domestic abuse, in particular our children and young people whose voices often go unheard, and we want you to help with that.

A small survey has been opened where you can share those views and experiences. It’s completely anonymous, though you can choose to provide details of the organisation you are from if you wish. It’s really important that we receive honest feedback and all feedback is greatly received. I would also encourage you to share this survey with your colleagues and networks.

The original deadline for responses has now been extended to end of play 19th November 2021 as we are really keen to hear what you have to say.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact myself, Aimee Lowther (Aimee.Lowther@nelincs.gov.uk) or Katie Chadwick (Katie.Chadwick@nelincs.gov.uk). Thank you.

Calling parents and carers across the Humber – Tell the NHS what matters to you

Deadline 6th December 2021

Across the Humber, the NHS and local partners are looking at ways to improve healthcare in our region and they want your input to help us make the best changes for you and your family.
The Humber Acute Services programme is looking at how to make healthcare work better for local people. It is looking at the types of healthcare and treatments that people typically receive from one of the five main hospitals in the region:

• Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby
• Scunthorpe General Hospital
• Hull Royal Infirmary
• Castle Hill Hospital
• Goole and District Hospital

They are thinking about how these services could be provided differently in the future, whether in hospitals or GP surgeries, at home or on the high street.

They would really like to hear from parents and carers of children and young people who have experience of using one of these hospitals for paediatric care to better understand from your perspective what works well, what doesn’t and what could change to improve your experience.

Please take 5 minutes to complete this short survey  to help them to understand what is most important to you as they work to plan for the future
