Keeping safe in the city - in their own words

During the 16 Days of Action, we will be publishing a series of blogs from survivors of domestic and sexual violence and abuse about their experiences, as well as information from professionals about their day to day work to help keep people safe in the city. Contributors include staff from Sussex Police, RISE and Survivors Network, as well as service users.
