The Equally Safe strategy has a vision of a strong and flourishing Scotland where all individuals are equally safe and respected, and where women and girls live free from all forms of violence and abuse â€“ and the attitudes that help perpetuate it.
It aims to encourage activities where Scottish Government works collaboratively with key partners in the public, private and third sectors to prevent and eradicate all forms of violence against women and girls.
â€˜There is one universal truth, applicable to all countries, cultures and communities: violence against women is never acceptable, never excusable, never tolerable.â€™
United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon.
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 Â£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, Scotlandâ€™s strategy for preventing and eradicating violence against women and girls.
The Rape Crisis Specific Fund has funded 16 organisations across Scotland since 2017. With over Â£3m invested, the fund ensures that local rape crisis services can continue providing direct support to women who have experienced sexual violence.
The funding has allowed the projects to ensure that there is a responsive, person-centred service available for the survivors of sexual assaults and rape and to make sure that they have access to the services they need and the information to make the right decisions for them.
