Examples from victim-survivors of DFSV of when someone has followed your lead

Insight Exchange is establishing a Follow My Lead library of examples and we want to hear from people with lived experience of domestic, family and sexualised violence who have positive examples to share that will inform other responders.

Survey Design:
The survey is structured to focus only on the purpose intended and to minimise distress to participants as the survey cannot be responded to due to it being anonymous by design.

Length: 15min (approx) survey with 4 questions below.

Survey Introduction:
The resource Follow My Lead was designed to inform and support responders (formal ad informal) to recognise and value the lived-expertise of victim-survivors of DFSV and to follow their lead.

We want to build a library of positive examples that show that following a victim-survivors lead is vital and possible no matter what industry or situation.

We are inviting victim-survivors of DFSV to share one example of how a responder (formal or informal) followed your lead. 

Your example will be used to strengthen individual, community and organisational responses to domestic, family and sexualised violence.

Explore examples in the library
We have included some examples in the library on our website that are designed to show you the look and feel of the library. You can view the library examples here:

If you completing this survey or listening to the examples is distressing in any way, you can stop the survey at any time. You may wish to talk to someone you trust or call a support service of your choice. Insight Exchange does not provide direct services. Our free digital resources, specifically ‘Follow My Lead’, ‘My Safety Kit ’ and ‘My Dignity’ point to support contacts - these are available on our website
