The Aberdeenshire Violence Against Women & Girls Partnership Strategy & Plan has been published

Aberdeenshire’s Violence Against Women and Girls Partnership has launched a strategy and action plan this week shaped by the voice of survivors.

The partnership is part of a national drive, embedding a multi-agency mechanism to deliver on Equally Safe: Scotland’s strategy for preventing and eradicating violence against women and girls, at a local strategic level.

It brings together Aberdeenshire Council, Grampian Women’s Aid, Police Scotland, Rape Crisis Grampian, Aberdeenshire Alcohol and Drugs Partnership, Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Grampian, Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration (SCRA), Scottish Fire Service and Alcohol and Drugs Action. Partners have listened to those who have experienced abuse and used that insight to shape the new strategy. The partnership’s aim is to improve agency responses to women, children and young people who have experienced abuse.

Equally Safe has four key priorities:

  • Scottish society embraces equality and mutual respect and rejects all forms of violence against women and girls.
  • Women and girls thrive as equal citizens: socially, culturally, economically and politically.
  • Interventions are early and effective, preventing violence and maximising the safety and wellbeing of women, children and young people.
  • Men desist from all forms of violence against women and girls and perpetrators of such violence receive a robust and effective response.
