Crimes of violence and abuse have a profound and lasting effect on society.
They can shatter the lives of victims, tear apart families, and damage whole communities. No set of crimes does this more than those coming under the definition of violence against women and girls.
The Home Office wishes to engage with and listen to those with lived experience of or views on violence against women and girls, those with expertise in working with victims / survivors, those involved in preventative activity, in providing services and, more generally, the communities and organisations affected by these crimes.
