Young Scot: National Young People’s Domestic Abuse Survey

Can you help Young Scot’s “Voice Against Violence” group gather data on young people’s views and experience of domestic abuse?

We have a new survey on our national consultation toolkit (Young Scot Says Who –, which has been created by Voice Against Violence who are a group of young people who have firsthand experience of domestic abuse. They have been working with the Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (CoSLA) on a Delivery Plan which aims to eradicate domestic abuse from Scotland, and have just recently launched a national campaign targeted specifically at young people.

In addition to this they have created a national survey aimed at gathering the views of all young people across Scotland on their perceptions and experience of domestic abuse. The information gathered in this anonymous survey will be used by Voice Against Violence to inform the Scottish Government of the views of Scottish young people and feed into the Delivery Plan.

We have worked with them on this and are aware of the very sensitive nature of the survey, but it all comes from Voice Against Violence who are obviously knowledgeable and informed on this subject, and it is this personal experience and sensitivity that has guided the work.

We would greatly appreciate if you could forward this email containing the relevant link (below) throughout your contacts as they are keen for this to reach as wide an audience as possible, and within that anyone who feels happy to do so can complete it.

If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks,
