Written by on March 30, 2016 in Request for help - Comments Off on Lambeth seeks contributions on violence against women strategy

Beaten womanLambeth council is seeking contributions to a review of its strategy on violence against women and girls (VAWG). It was launched in 2011 to provide a joined-up response to people experiencing gender-based violence in all its forms.

If you have accessed Lambeth services, or if you are a professional who comes into contact with people experiencing VAWG, the council like to hear from you. The consultation ends on Thursday 14 April and feedback will be used to update the strategy.

To take part in the consultation visit www.lambeth.gov.uk/genderbasedviolence or call Freephone 0800 013 1497.

If you need help or advice because you are currently experiencing gender-based violence, you can contact the Gaia centre in Lambeth on 020 7733 8724 or email lambethvawg@refuge.org.uk.
