Youth Consultation on Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG)

In the UK there has been a PM-appointed Ministerial Champion for tackling violence against women and girls (VAWG) overseas since 2010 . The role, supported by officials across Whitehall, was initially based in the Home Office, moving to the Department for International Development (DFID) in 2012.

On February 19th 2016, the newly appointed Ministerial Champion, Baroness Verma did a consultation with the Youth For Change UK Coalition to discuss three key priority areas; domestic violence, adolescent girls and how to engage men and boys in tackling the issues of VAWG. 

Youth For Change would now like to consult with a wider pool of young people both in the UK and overseas to get an understanding of what young people would like from this role and how it can help the work being done internationally. We would therefore like to invite you to take part in a short survey, to allow your recommendations to be passed on to Baroness Verma, which we hope will help to shape her approach in tackling these issues.

Please complete this short survey with your recommendations and have your say! The findings from this survey will be published on
