Domestic Abuse - anonymous survey 2014
The New Forest Domestic Abuse Forum is asking victims of domestic abuse to take part in a quick, easy and anonymous survey to help develop improved support services.
By taking part, you will really make a difference in helping people who are suffering this terrible crime to find best possible support to stop the abuse.
Domestic abuse affects women and men from all walks of life - and many feel afraid to seek help and change their lives for the better.
No-one should suffer in silence.
Whether the abuse is physical or emotional - there are organisations, including the police and Women's Aid workers, who are just a phone call away and ready to help victims.
Roadside vehicle insurance check for accident victims
A free mobile phone service has been launched to help millions of accident victims check vehicle insurance details at the roadside.
The 'askMID' service, launched by the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB), is accessible via smartphones at www.askMID.com and can be used to check the insurance details of the other parties involved in a road traffic accident.
Drivers can access the Motor Insurance Database (MID) through a mobile-friendly web page. This confirms whether the other vehicle involved in the accident is showing as insured on the MID and provides the other party's insurance details so that the claim can be pursued quickly.
If the results from askMID checks are inconsistent with the vehicle involved in the accident, the user is advised to contact their insurer. The service signposts the user to relevant information.
