Have Your Say

We want you to have your say and influence your local health services. When major changes are being considered, we need to know what local people think and your views are integral in helping us make decisions.

Consultations and surveys give you the opportunity to let us know how you feel about suggested changes and by taking part, you can help us to improve the NHS services we commission.

On this page you can find details of current consultations and surveys relating to both local and national health services. Please do take the time to fill them out – every response is really valuable.

Taking action against violence and abuse

Brighton & Hove City Council, East Sussex County Council, Safe in the City and East Sussex Safer Communities Partnership are working together to address all forms of violence and abuse, with the aim of reducing the risk to potential victims and ensuring victims and survivors get the help, support and protection they need. The partners are in the process of developing a joint strategy against domestic abus, stalking and harassment, sexual assault, rape and sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, crimes committed in the name of 'honour' and sexual exploitation.

The partners have commissioned UK charity, Against Violence and Abuse (AVA) to conduct an independent consultation to gather the views of those who live, work or travel to Brighton & Hove and East Sussex about these forms of violence and abuse.

There are two surveys running until 14 May 2018. To get involved:

  • Click here if you are i) an adult victim/survivor of any type of violence and abuse listed above, ii) someone who has contact with victims/survivors or perpetrators in a professional capacity, and iii) anyone else who lives, works or travels to Brighton & Hove or East Sussex
  • Click here if you are someone who has used violence and abuse towards a partner, family member or in the community

If you are interested in hosting a focus group for victims/survivors or participating in a stakeholder group for professionals, please email jennifer.holly@avaproject.org.uk.
