Understanding domestic abuse in our rural communities
Working with the National Rural Crime Network (NRCN) to better understand domestic abuse issues in rural areas.
Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill said: “Domestic abuse can affect anyone – whether they live in the smallest village or the biggest city – but sadly not enough is known nationally about the experiences of those living in rural areas. The National Rural Crime Network is now running the biggest ever survey which gives residents the chance to have their say and influence national policy.
“I would encourage anyone to take part in the survey as it is vital we continue to work hard to find out more about how services can be improved to help people who have been affected by this damaging crime.”
