The Coalition Government has made the tackling of violence against women and girls a high priority. Our approach is set out in our strategy, ‘Call to End Violence Against Women and Girls’ published in November 2010, together with a
supporting Action Plan. A revised version of the Action Plan was published in March 2014 and contains 150 actions across Government departments.
For the first time, this Government has put stable funding in place, ring-fencing nearly £40 million for specialist local domestic and sexual violence support services, rape crisis centres, and national helplines. This includes £20,000 funding provided by the Home Office for the provision of an Independent Domestic Violence Adviser at Mosaic in Lambeth, £15,000 to Lambeth Council towards Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) provision and
£20,000 to Eaves Housing towards provision for an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor. Through the Female Rape Support Fund 2014-16 the Ministry of Justice provides £70,000 per annum to Rape Crisis South London to support female
victims of rape or sexual violence.
