Delivering Equally Safe Impact Report April 2022 – September 2022

The Delivering Equally Safe (DES) team at Inspiring Scotland have released a new report on the impact of funded activity tackling gender-based violence (GBV) between April 2022-September 2022.

During the six-month period 23,439 people affected by GBV received frontline support from funded organisations and 27,541 people engaged in awareness raising and education sessions.

The report highlights key learnings from 121 funded projects delivering activity throughout Scotland. It has a particular focus on policy areas including:

  • Domestic Abuse
  • Specialist and Targeted GBV Support
  • Honour-Based Abuse and support for BME People
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Intimate Image Abuse
  • CEDAR
  • Safe and Together
  • Commercial Sexual Exploitation
  • Primary Prevention

 

To mark the report release, the Minister for Victims and Community Safety, Siobhian Brown MSP took part in a discussion with several DES-funded projects in Dundee to learn more about their work.

The Minister also had the privilege of meeting with participants from the Young Women’s Movement and families who have taken part in CEDAR (children experiencing domestic abuse recovery), to hear directly about their experiences of DES funded activity. The visit took place at Dundee Women’s Aid, in rooms recently refurbished using DES funding.
