Help end violence against women and girls

Vawg original

Three local councils are developing a new strategy for ending violence against women and girls across Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster. To help make sure they get it right, they want to hear from local residents about their experiences and what they think is a priority for tackling violence. 

Everyone aged 16 or over who lives, works or studies in these areas is welcome to contribute to the survey. Please note that you do not have to have personally experienced violence against women and girls to take part. 

Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) is the umbrella term used to describe a range of violent and abusive acts and behaviours, including:

  • domestic abuse (including coercive control)
  • rape and sexual violence
  • female genital mutilation
  • forced marriage
  • crimes in the name of 'honour'
  • sexual harassment
  • stalking
  • trafficking
  • prostitution/sexual exploitation

For Hammersmith and Fulham residents,  the survey can be accessed here and will close on Wednesday 30 June 2021.

For Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea residents, the survey can be accessed here and will close on Sunday 20 June 2021.
