There are a number of factors at various stages that are likely to have an impact on conviction rates for rape, but the Crown Prosecution Service is committed to improving the conviction rate for rape by working closely with partners in all police force areas.

In order to provide consistency of approach, the CPS has also established networks of Violence against Women and Girls co-ordinators.
