Violence Against Women and Girls Call for Evidence reopened

This call for evidence was reopened on 12 March to collect further views from those with lived experience of, or views on, crimes considered as violence against women and girls (VAWG). It has been reopened to reflect the recent public discussion about VAWG. It is open to all genders. It previously ran for 10 weeks from 10 December 2020 to 19 February 2021. The reopened consultation closes on 26 March 2021.

The Home Office is seeking views to help inform the development of the government's next Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy. It is particularly keen to hear from people who may feel underrepresented in previous strategies or who feel their circumstances were not supported by existing services.

In addition to those with lived experiences of these issues, the Home Office is also seeking the views of those with expertise in working with victims and survivors, those involved in preventative activity, and those involved in providing services. This includes relevant professionals, such as those working in social care, education, law enforcement, local government, public health and healthcare.

Everyone aged 16 or over is welcome to contribute to the call for evidence, participants do not have to have experienced violence or abuse.

You can participate in the call for evidence by completing the public survey.
