Are you confident that you will fulfil the commitments made in the London Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls strategy by 2021?

I am very confident that through working with my Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime and partners, I will fulfil the commitments made within the Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls strategy. Significant progress has been made already and work is being undertaken by my Office for Policing and Crime and partners on making sure all the commitments will be delivered by 2021. However, whilst all of us at City Hall are doing all we can to deliver my VAWG strategy it should be noted that Government funding in this area does not match demand and therefore services are under significant pressure, this in turn creates challenges for delivery across all partners. The additional funding I have provided to VAWG services will in part help but we cannot do this alone, and I will continue to lobby government on this issue.
