The ending violence against women and girls strategy plans to bring all services to their level best and ensure that women get the support they need to ensure long-term changes to their lives and the lives of their children is based on four themes:

  • Preventing violence and abuse from happening in the first place
  • Provision of services that ensure that victims get the help they need when they need it
  • Partnership working - strong partnership arrangements across national, regional and local boundaries to help victims and provide an effective first response to violence and abuse.
  • Pursuing perpetrators - an effective criminal justice response is crucial to tackling VAWG.
