There are seven full time members of staff working in the London based Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) team. The team is supported by colleagues from geographic and thematic desks whose portfolios cover PSVI issues. In addition the team works closely with other government departments including Stabilisation Unit and DFID. It is not possible to provide accurate figures of all UK and locally engaged staff around the FCO network who work on PSVI but over the last twelve months the London PSVI team has worked with staff in over eighty posts to take forward PSVI objectives.
