Detail

On 25 November, to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the coalition government launched a paper outlining their ambition and guiding principles to tackle violence against women and girls.

The principles of this vision are to:

  1. prevent violence from happening by challenging the attitudes and behaviours which foster it and intervening early where possible to prevent it
  2. provide adequate support where violence does occur
  3. work in partnership to obtain the best outcome for victims and their families
  4. take action to reduce the risk to women and girls who are victims of these crimes and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.
