Description

Equally Safe: Scotland’s National Strategy for Preventing and Eradicating Violence Against Women and Girls sets out the Scottish Government and COSLA’s shared vision for a strong and flourishing Scotland where all individuals are equally safe and respected, and where women and girls live free from all forms of violence and abuse – and the attitudes that help perpetuate it.

Equally Safe recognises that no one organisation can be responsible for achieving this vision and highlights the need for engagement in every area of government and wider society including, local authorities, Police Scotland, the NHS, the civil and criminal justice systems, social work, housing, media, the business sector, trade unions, third sector organisations and individuals and communities too.

To help support this vision, the National Violence Against Women Network invites you to join us at our inaugural conference, Tackling VAWG is Everyone’s Business. The conference aims to:

  • Raise awareness of the causes, consequences and appropriate responses to all forms of violence against women and girls.

  • Highlight how multi-agency partnership working can help to improve outcomes for women and children at a local level and encourage stakeholders from a wide range of sectors to consider the contribution they can make to this agenda.

  • Showcase good work happening within local communities across Scotland to prevent and eradicate VAWG and promote women’s equality.

There will be opportunities to hear from a range of speakers, participate in workshops and network with other organisations.

The full programme for the day will be posted on this site in due course.

Please note that there are a limited number of places for this event, therefore we would ask that you limit your bookings to 2 individuals per organisation/service.
