Domestic abuse

Advice on what to do if you are experiencing domestic abuse.

Argyll and Bute Violence against Women and Girls Partnership

We work to ensure that domestic and gender based violence against women and girls, is not tolerated and that the right services are in place to support survivors.  We bring together key partners including the Council, Health Board, Police, Education, Criminal and Community Justice, Housing and other Third Sector organisations, to provide a focus for actions to eradicate violence and the impacts of violence on survivor’s lives.  These key actions make up the Argyll and Bute Equally Safe Implementation Plan 2018 – 2021

We work with our members to ensure that they have policies and procedures that are gender informed and support survivors of domestic abuse and their families.  This includes advice services that offer support, such as: counselling; housing, welfare rights advice and signposting to other services.  Our work also ensures that members have the appropriate policies and procedures in place to support their own employees effectively. In addition we work alongside Criminal Justice, Community Justice and the Judiciary to create programmes for perpetrators in order to allow them to address their behaviour. 

We believe it is essential to consult with survivors and other important groups, and keep them informed of our work and the work of our members.  As a part of this, views and feedback are welcomed on the work of the partnership and the information contained on this webpage.
