Violence Against Women and Girls Consultation

Closed 13 Sep 2019

Opened 5 Aug 2019


We are inviting your views to help us develop a new strategy to address violence against women and girls. It will aim to tackle domestic violence and abuse, sexual violence, female genital mutilation, so-called ‘honour-based’ violence, forced marriage and stalking and harassment. Whilst the new strategy will have a broad heading of Violence against Women and Girls, it will also consider how to prevent these crime types against male victims.  

These are serious crimes which have a huge impact on people’s lives, the economy, health services and the criminal justice system.  

The three-year strategy will be developed by the Richmond Community Safety Partnership and will aim to reduce the prevalence of this violence and abuse; build the skills and capability of local organisations to provide effective advice and support services; reduce serious harm resulting from violence and abuse and increase the number of reported offenders brought to justice.  

We want to hear from everyone – survivors of violence and abuse, families and friends, individuals or organisations working with survivors or perpetrators and anyone else who would like to share their views.
