On Thursday 15th April, MPs consider amendments to the Domestic Abuse Bill that were passed by the House of Lords before Easter. They have an opportunity to vote for key amendments to strengthen the Bill and close the gaps it will otherwise leave for survivors.
We are calling for MPs to vote for amendments to:
- Protect migrant women, who are more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation especially women with no recourse to public funds.
- Create a statutory requirement to provide community-based services.
- Tackle serial perpetrators of domestic abuse and stalking.
- Extend coercive control legislation to include post separation abuse.
