Our vision is that Lambeth is a borough in which residents do not have to be fearful of, or experience, gender based violence.

The Safer Lambeth Partnership has a long history of commitment to tackling Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). Addressing VAWG remains one of the key priorities for the Safer Lambeth Partnership and for the council.

This strategy refresh commits us to building on the approach set out in our first Strategy, as we feel that this has been effective in driving change.

Our vision is that Lambeth is a borough in which residents do not have to be fearful of, or experience, gender based violence. This Strategy will maintain our approach to tackling VAWG using the Ps framework, with an additional new priority relating to perpetrators. Our VAWG strategic priorities for 2016 to 2020 are:

  1. Preventing violence and abuse
  2. Provision of services
  3. Pursuing perpetrators
  4. Partnership working
