Shared Core Standards
The VAWG Sector Sustainability Working Group, comprising Imkaan, Rape Crisis England & Wales, Respect, SafeLives and Women’s Aid, have a set of Shared Core Standards. The purpose of these standards is to enable joint commissioning across specialist services in the VAWG sector, both nationally and locally.Shared Core Standards
