The Home Secretary and I regularly discuss all issues related to tackling Violence Against Women and Girls with other Government Departments, including through the Inter-Ministerial Group on VAWG which she chairs. The Group meets quarterly and oversees the co-ordination of cross-departmental activity to tackle VAWG and provides a forum for discussing issues such as Women’s Aid’s SOS campaign, and the funding of women’s refuges.

I discussed this issue, amongst others, with the Minister for Women and Equalities last week.
