Brighton & Hove City Council is seeking views/experiences of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) in Brighton & Hove.

They are inviting responses to a survey which will inform the development of the city’s forthcoming Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy.  The council want to hear views and experiences to inform understanding of how safe all women and girls are in Brighton & Hove. The survey is focusing on anyone over the age of 16.  All residents including, men and boys, are invited to share their experiences of these crimes.

The term VAWG (Violence Against Women and Girls) is an umbrella term for a range of crime types disproportionately affecting all females, including:

  • domestic abuse
  • sexual violence including rape
  • sexual exploitation
  • sexual harassment
  • stalking
  • ‘honour-based’ violence (HBV)
  • forced marriage
  • faith based abuse
  • female genital mutilation (FGM) or cutting
  • forced prostitution and human trafficking
  • violence against women in public spaces
  • online abuse

BHCC are interested in your direct or indirect experience of VAWG, as victims, as bystanders to these crimes, your experience of seeking support and your suggestions for how to make Brighton & Hove safer for everyone.
