The Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy, which has been signed by all the key partners in Derby City and Derbyshire who work to prevent this type of violence, provides a Derbyshire-centric approach to protecting and supporting those at risk. It builds upon the extensive work already underway, responds fully to the National Strategy, and harnesses the expertise and experience of all the partners into a streamlined delivery plan.
Commissioner Angelique Foster has been at the forefront of the work to agree this strategy, seeing the benefits of a single, unified approach.
“Violence against women and girls is still far too prevalent in our society. That is why I have asked all partners in Derbyshire, including Derbyshire Constabulary, Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council and the eight district authorities to come together to develop and deliver this county-wide strategy.” Commissioner Angelique Foster
The Police & Crime Commissioner’s Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG) survey was held to inform the Commissioner, Derbyshire Constabulary and partners of views and experiences of people in Derbyshire, and to ensure the co-production, with the public, of the Derbyshire VAWG strategy.
