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.
The visitor economy business survey is being undertaken by the National Coastal Tourism Academy (NCTA) on behalf of the Coastal Communities Funded project “Coastal Sustainability through Careers and Business Skills in Greater Lincolnshire”.
All recorded data will be anonymised,and the results of this survey will be published as part of the CCF project on www.coastalcommunities.co.uk

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.

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.
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner has been looking at the issue of violence against women and children for some time now. They have invested in resources to look at long term solutions to address specifically domestic abuse but this agenda goes way beyond violence in the home.

A public questionnaire has been made available today to help understand local opinions regarding Grimsby’s Top Town Market.
More than £17 million has been awarded to North East Lincolnshire to deliver changes to Grimsby town centre, including a fresh home for Grimsby’s Top Town Market and the redevelopment of part of Freshney Place Shopping Centre, to incorporate a new cinema and leisure facilities nearby.
As part of the developing plans, Quarterbridge, the retail consultant working on the scheme, is seeking opinions on how the market is used currently, as well as people’s shopping habits. People’s thoughts on what they would like to see in the future will also be used to support existing and new traders and drive footfall following the redevelopment.
