Glasgow Violence Against Women Partnership

The Glasgow Violence Against Women Partnership aims to:

  • Promote a multi agency response to violence against women
  • Establish current level of service provision for women who have experienced violence, or whose children have experienced violence
  • Develop and improve services provided by statutory and voluntary organisations to ensure that services are accessible, and that they respond effectively and consistently to women who have experienced violence or whose children have experienced violence
  • Ensure improved protection for women and their children
  • Promote a community response to male violence, in support of abused women and to challenge abusive men, with the aim of reducing levels of violence against women and women's fear of violence

    Zero Tolerance

    The first Zero Tolerance campaign was launched in Edinburgh in November 1992 by Edinburgh District Council’s Women’s Committee. This was the first crime prevention campaign in Britain to tackle the issue of male violence against women and children. More than 10 years later, Zero Tolerance continues to work in partnership with organisations to develop and implement innovative awareness-raising campaigns,practice and resources. With a primary focus on prevention, they are continuing their ground-breaking work to inform policy and practice to ensure that wider inequalities are addressed in strategies to prevent male violence.
