The Southwark Safer Communities Team (part of Southwark Council) wants your help to commission high quality support and advocacy services for anyone in Southwark experiencing any form of gender-based violence or abuse (often referred to as Violence against women and girls or VAWG). This includes: 

•           Domestic abuse
•           Female genital mutilation (FGM)
•           Forced marriage
•           Crimes committed in the name of “honour”
•           Sexual violence, abuse, exploitation and rape
•           Stalking and/or harassment
•           Trafficking for sexual exploitation
•           Prostitution

They want to ensure the services they commission provide the right support at the right time to everyone who needs it. To do this, they want to better understand the views and experiences of residents who have been affected by any of these issues, either directly or indirectly. Whether or not you have chosen to access services before, your views are important. The views you share can be completely anonymous.

The team will use what you tell them to help shape future services from April 2022. We look forward to hearing from you by the closing date of 05 October 2020. Find out more here.
