Commissioner invites everyone to give their view on what can be done to stop Violence Against Women and Girls

As part of her plans to develop an overarching strategy to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls in North Yorkshire and York, Commissioner Zoë has launched an online survey to seek a wide range of views on the issues and how we can make a real difference to the lives of the women and girls here.

Zoë is already working with survivors, victims and partner organisations to develop a collective commitment to address all forms of violence against women and girls across different settings, communities and locations and, as part of that work, she wants to ensure everyone has the chance to have their view represented.

The survey is anonymous and open to everyone – of every gender, every age and every situation and the results will directly inform the development of the strategy.

It is available for comment until midnight on Sunday 27 March
