Embedding Authentic Voice: Bolton, Leicestershire and Sheffield

Our project across Bolton, Leicestershire and Sheffield aims to transform responses to domestic abuse by ensuring survivor voices are at the centre of design and delivery of policies and services.

Thanks to National Lottery players, SafeLives has received more than £1.44m from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest community funder in the UK, for a community led approach to ending domestic abuse. The initiative puts local organisations and survivors at the heart of tackling domestic abuse by supporting them to share lived experience to develop best practice.

The three-year project will deliver a blueprint for embedding child and adult domestic abuse survivors’ voices in community approaches to preventing, and supporting recovery from, domestic abuse.

Survivor voices

A group of experts by experience came together and named themselves the SafeLives Pioneers, because they want to use their experiences and passion to change the world. Their voices inform everything we do, and together we aim to transform the response to domestic abuse in the UK – for every victim and survivor and their children.
