Brief Description

The Government’s Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) strategy identifies that some sectors of society can experience multiple forms of discrimination and disadvantage or additional barriers to accessing support. This includes women and girls from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, disabled and LGBT victims. The Violence Against Women And Girls National Statement of Expectations makes clear to local partnerships what good commissioning and service provision looks like. It also sets out that Commissioners should have access to a
broad diversity of provision, considering how services will be accessible to BAME, disabled, LGBT and older victims and survivors.
