Preventing and reducing domestic violence, abuse and stalking

Homeour current priorities > domestic abuse



"To increase the awareness and understanding of domestic violence, abuse and stalking by residents of East Sussex, so that victim/survivors and their friends, families and employers are able to recognise these forms of violence & abuse, do not tolerate its presence in the community and know how to seek help and support for themselves or others. To improve the safety and wellbeing of the victim/survivor and to hold perpetrators to account."


Respond to the increase in reporting, in particular by ensuring professionals are able to ‘ask and act’ about domestic violence, abuse and stalking and by managing the impact on specialist services.
Work with health partners to identify opportunities to intervene earlier, including how to best support pregnant women.
Increase our knowledge regarding stalking and identify specific actions to enable identification and reporting. In particular, we will support opportunities to challenge the devastating nature of stalking and find ways to improve help and support available, such as the Talking Stalking event that was organised by Veritas Justice CIC as part of the 16 Days of Action Campaign.
