Equally Safe (Violence Against Women and Girls)

We want to eradicate all forms of violence against women and girls

The Equally Safe (Violence Against Women and Girls) Fund supports 62 organisations to deliver 85 projects right across Scotland in tackling all forms of violence against women and girls. Over £19.5m has been invested in this fund since 2017.

The aim of the fund is to support work to progress the outcomes in Equally Safe, Scotland’s strategy for preventing and eradicating violence against women and girls.

Further information

The funded projects offer refuge, places of safety and front-line services. They provide a lifeline for women, children and young people affected by domestic abuse.

They offer advice and advocacy to ensure that women are aware of their rights and help guide them through the support that is available within the organisations and through other agencies.

The funded projects often work in partnership with other organisations in the fund. This helps ensure that the needs of women that have been affected by domestic abuse are understood and that they have a voice in the decision- making processes.

Many of the projects provide training and awareness raising of the issues for staff in other agencies e.g. NHS. This allows them to work together to increase understanding of gender-based violence and to provide on-going holistic support.

Inspiring Scotland were delighted to be appointed fund managers for the Equally Safe (Violence Against Women and Girls) fund on behalf of the Scottish Government  in November 2020.

We will continue to work with the funded organisations until this term of the funding is completed in September 2021.
