Thank you for taking part in this questionnaire.

The aim of this questionnaire is to examine attitudes towards domestic violence or abuse. Everyone has different opinions of these issues, and everyone’s opinion is valid, so please answer each question honestly. The questionnaire will also briefly ask about your experience of domestic violence/ abuse.

This questionnaire is for all adult men and women, and our analysis will break the answers down by sexual orientation, age, gender, disability and ethnicity, to examine issues specific to each group.

The research is being conducted on behalf of the Men’s Advisory Project (MAP) in Belfast, a counselling organisation for male victims of domestic abuse who also offer anger management courses for both men and women. The study is funded by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety.

Please read each question carefully and answer by ticking the appropriate box or writing in the space provided.

This questionnaire is completely anonymous and there is no way in which you can be identified as an individual from the answers you give. Your responses are confidential and will be kept securely, to be viewed only by the researcher and will be used only for the purpose of this research project.

The questionnaire should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Please tick one box only unless the question asks otherwise. If you feel uncomfortable answering a particular question you can leave it blank or withdraw from the survey at any point, however your answers are valuable and will help us to understand current attitudes in Northern Ireland towards domestic violence and abuse, in order to improve awareness and services.
