We want your views on how we can make Lambeth a borough in which residents do not have to be fearful of, or experience gender-based violence. The consultation runs from 2 March to 12 April 2020. Share your views by completing our survey.

We want to know what Lambeth residents, people affected by gender-based violence, and practitioners think are the most important elements needed to provide the best services and support in the borough.

Gender-based violence is "any act....that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to any individual, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life."

This includes:

We want to hear from you

Hearing peoples’ views will help us to understand how well we are doing and what we can do to make our services better. 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

We will use the feedback to create our next Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy. A strategy is a way for us to communicate our vision, approach and most importantly, our commitments, to our community. We want to ensure that our future work is accessible to every person affected by VAWG and that we incorporate the expertise of our residents and practitioners from the earliest stages of the strategy’s creation.

See our current Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy. For further information about support available, please see our webpage Safer Lambeth VAWG.

Our next VAWG Strategy will be published on our website later this year and your feedback will form the basis of our future work to tackle gender-based violence.
