Violence against women and girls (VAWG)

The Safer Slough Partnership’s violence against women and girls+ strategy brings together key actions from the national VAWG strategy. It includes research carried out locally within Slough, into four keys areas of focus.

The focus areas are:

  • education and awareness
  • provision of services
  • community and partnership working
  • changing the behaviour of perpetrators.

The VAWG+ strategy has been developed by using the national VAWG strategy, in combination with localised research. This includes the Imkaan and Warwick University report and contextual findings generated from semi-structured interviews, held with multi-agency practitioners working with victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse.

The action plan that sits beneath the strategy will contain a range of activities and projects which will focus on the evidence gathered from both national and local research.
