On 20 March more than 10 key Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) sector organisations came together to issue a joint statement on Covid-19.

It recognises that Covid-19 will have serious impacts on the lives of women and children, and that, for many, home is not a place of safety. It is likely that these specialist VAWG services will become even more in demand.

The statement prioritises 6 particular actions needed:

  • Funding
  • Equal Support
  • Contingency Planning
  • Guidance
  • Awareness
  • Equal Representation, Monitoring & Action

The statement is available in full below, together with the full list of signatories:
