Protecting women and girls from violence and supporting victims is a key priority for this Government. To support the Government’s commitment to tackling violence against women and girls (VAWG), we have pledged increased funding of £100 million between now and 2020.

As part of reviewing delivery against our cross-Government VAWG strategy, we are mapping provision of funding for services to identify areas for further action.

We value the EU’s contribution to funding VAWG services. Our future cooperation with the EU will be subject to negotiation but we are fully committed to continue working with local commissioners to deliver a secure future for VAWG services.
