Equally Safe: Scotland’s strategy for preventing and eradicating violence against women and girls sets out the Scottish Government and COSLA’s shared vision for a strong and flourishing Scotland where all individuals are equally safe and respected, and where women and girls live free from all forms of violence and abuse – and the attitudes that help perpetuate it.
Through coordinating the National VAW Network and the National Cedar Project, the Improvement Service aims to support local councils and their partners to improve outcomes for women, children and young people affected by violence against women and girls.
National Violence Against Women Network
