The Action Plan on tackling Violence Against Women and Girls was published on 8 March this year, and we have already delivered in several areas. We have provided over £28 million of stable Home Office funding until 2015 for local specialist services, £900,000 has been made available until 2015 to support national helplines and we have implemented legislation for multi-agency Domestic Homicide Reviews after every domestic murder.
