Your voice for change

Our experience-based insights and guidance are helping to shape better services.

VOICES actively influences the improvement of domestic abuse services by providing opportunities for people with lived experience to take part in consultation and to shape training or awareness campaigns. We have worked with the Ministry of Justice, national organisations like SafeLives, health and mental health researchers, and people who fund and run services. 

One way to get involved is through our SEEDS volunteer group (Survivors Empowering and Educating Domestic Abuse Services). SEEDS aims to make access to and use of support services easier and more effective, helping families recover and thrive. If you would like to get involved with SEEDS’ activities or with any of our consultation projects, we would be delighted to hear from you.
