Other methods of survivor participation and getting agencies to take action

In the last two chapters, we have discussed some of the new methods being tried out to achieve survivor representation. These include domestic violence forums or advisory groups, structured representation through women’s projects and the role of national and local campaigning and lobbying organisations in representing abused women’s views. However, there is a wide variety of other methods which are currently in use. We discuss these in this chapter and also consider how to convert the results of participation processes into action and policy change.
