Communications Paper on Approaches to Promoting and Developing an Understanding of Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence

 

Cosc would like to advise that the Communications Paper on Approaches to Promoting and Developing an Understanding of Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence is available to download Click here.

The paper forms part of the implementation of the National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010 – 2014 and is intended as guidance to organisations and professionals on suggested approaches to promote and develop an understanding and recognition of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence.  It presents material related to the general population and two population specific groupings namely members of the Traveller Community and members of migrant communities.

The paper outlines suggestions and advice as to developing messages and methods for awareness raising; confronting offending behaviour; and increasing the understanding and recognition of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence.

The document is informed by work and recommendations of the Public Awareness Sub-Committee as agreed by the National Steering Committee for Violence against Women.  Cosc would like to extend its appreciation to the committee members for their considerable work in developing this paper.

Please feel free to forward it to any interested parties.
