The Government recognises the damaging impact that violence and abuse can have on victims, businesses, and the wider community; and we are committed to tackling this issue.

The call for evidence on violence and abuse toward shop staff was intended to help strengthen our understanding of the scale and extent of the issue. We are carefully analysing the responses before deciding what further action may be required and intend to publish the government’s response in due course.
