Consultation with Victims-Survivors of Violence Against Women and Girls - Imkaan/MOPAC
Imkaan has been commissioned by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to collate the views of women and girls affected by gender-based violence via a series of focus groups and interviews to inform the development of the second London VAWG strategy. This work provides the opportunity for women and girls to influence future planning in London. We would like to involve:
- Former-service users of voluntary sector specialist provision, statutory services and criminal justice agencies. This will include women exiting prostitution.
- BME (Black, Minority and Ethnic) women and girls including those who have experienced forced marriage, female genital mutilation and “honour”-based violence.
- Young women under the age of 18 including those who have been/are associated to gangs.
- We will explore any barriers to accessing service provision e.g. disability, sexual identity, and age.
The objective of this piece is to obtain the perspectives of women and girls to strengthen our understanding of service gaps and needs, pathways through which women and girls in London access protection and support and identification of promising practice in prevention work. We will also develop recommendations on effective service models, and a report will be produced in June 2013.
If you work in this area and would like to contribute to the project please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7250 3933.
