What is this Challenge all about?

Police Scotland is committed to keeping everyone in Scotland's diverse communities safe. We are developing a new strategy setting out what the service will do to respond to violence against women and girls. This strategy will contribute to our mission, keeping people safe. 

We want to work together with the people of Scotland to identify the things that will make a difference and play our part in wider societal efforts to make Scotland a safer place for everyone.

Police Scotland develops strategies that support what we do to improve the safety and wellbeing of people, places and communities.

How can we all, individually and collectively, ensure Scotland is a safe place for women and girls? What do you think Police Scotland can do?

We want our new strategy to make a difference. We are inviting you to share ideas about what Police Scotland can do within and with Scotland's communities to end violence against women and girls. The following questions might help get you thinking about your own ideas.

You do not need to answer these questions directly, they are here to get you thinking about your ideas: 

  • How can Police Scotland make a difference?
  • How is your community working together to end violence against women and girls already?
  • What is needed for a society and culture where women and girls live free from all forms of violence, abuse, exploitation and harassment?
