The ending violence against women and girls strategy: 2016 to 2020 provides an overview of the wide range of actions the government is taking over a period of four years to end violence against women and girls. It was launched on 8 March 2016.

In March 2019 a refreshed strategy was published to re-affirm commitments to tackling violence against women and children. The refreshed strategy sets out additional actions to strengthen our response through to 2020. The action plan update provides detail of progress made against the actions set out in the 2016 strategy.

Alongside the refreshed strategy, we have published a position statement on male victims of crimes considered in the ending violence against women and girls strategy. This outlines the government’s recognition of and commitment to male victims of these crimes.

The government provides information on how to get help if you or someone you know is a victim of violence against women and girls. Find out more about the support available.
