Campaign for Urgent amendments to the Domestic Abuse Bill
The Domestic Abuse Bill begins Report Stage in the House of Lords on 8th March 2021. We need your help to ensure Disabled survivors are protected
Upholding the rights of disabled survivors of domestic abuse
Stay Safe East is asking for your support for two critical amendments to the Domestic Abuse Bill, which is going to Report Stage in the House of Lords on 8th March 2021. We have very little time and urgently need your help to ensure that this Bill protects ALL victims, including disabled victims.
An outline of our concerns and proposed amendments can be found in the letter attached from Stay Safe East.
I have also attached an official legal opinion, endorsed by Bindmans, which we have Baroness Jane Campbell of Surbiton to thank for, gathering together a few of her contacts who are senior social care and/or disability discrimination lawyers.
Further details can be found on the page on the Stay Safe East website dedicated to the Domestic Abuse Bill.
What you can do:
- Share the Stay Safe East letter across your networks
- Show your support by signing our petition on change.org
- Share our posts on Twitter and Facebook to gather support
- Contact members of the House of Lords to vote for our amendments
- Contact your MPs

Thank you for your support. Together we can help keep disabled survivors safe.
