VAWG frontline service providers can make use of these international conventions and instruments ratified by the UK to hold the UK Government to account when its actions fall short of what is required to protect the rights of women and girls.
These cases from the UK courts explore legal issues around the due diligence obligations of the police and other public bodies to protect, prevent, prosecute, punish and provide redress for violence against women and girls in the UK.
In this section, we provide policy papers and related documents published by central and local government and combined authorities concerning policies, strategies and public authority responses to violence against women and girls.
In February 2018, the UK Government announced its commitment to a new, transformative approach to domestic violence in the UK. A public consultation was held from March – May 2018 and the Government’s draft Bill was published in January 2019.
Sisters For Change adopts a collaborative research approach in ending violence against women and girls. Our reports and briefing notes set out the findings of our research and offer concrete policy and legislative recommendations.
These reports, toolkits and other resources are intended to support VAWG case workers, activists and frontline service providers in the delivery of their jobs and services. They include data, best practice guides and policy papers.
