Domestic and sexual violence is an alarming problem in our country. Services are there to help but are they good enough?, asks the Mid West Regional Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women.

They are seeking feedback on services through consultations with people whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence.
