Lambeth VAWG Strategy

We dedicate our VAWG strategy to those who had their lives taken from them, and we commit to making Lambeth a safer borough for everyone.

Between 2016, when we published our second Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) strategy, and 2021 when we launched our third, 5 Lambeth residents had their lives taken from them because of VAWG.

We know that more needs to be done.

Our third strategy builds on the work in previous strategies and sets out our vision, approach and most importantly, our commitments to tackling VAWG in Lambeth. We have reviewed our previous actions and examined the data available to us to understand our successes, gaps and lessons learned.

Our strategic priorities

Our consultation has told us what our strategic priorities should be, and these will shape the work of the Safer Lambeth Partnership in tackling Violence Against Women and Girls.

Our priorities for 2021-2027 are:

From the earliest stages of design and development we have worked with those who have lived experience of VAWG.

Experts by experience are best placed to advise on what solutions, support and services will make a positive difference to their lives. We draw on the testimonies of experts by experience who bravely describe the impact these lived experiences can have. We thank them for their contributions.

We also know that these issues exist across all of society and that we need everyone - residents, statutory agencies, communities, charities, faith-based organisations and businesses - to work together to make our borough safer. For now, and for future generations. We want to create a truly coordinated community response, and for that we need to work together, listen, learn and act.
