  1. Fifth progress report on National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010-2014

 

Fifth progress report on National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010-2014.


The fifth progress report on the National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010-2014 was considered by the Strategy Oversight Committee on the 26th of September 2012.


The Strategy Oversight Committee is chaired by the Secretary General of the Department of Justice and Equality, Mr. Brian Purcell, and includes representatives of the principal government departments and state agencies with responsibility for implementing the activities of the strategy, the Department of Health, the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government, the Department of Education and Skills, An Garda Síochána, the HSE and Cosc. The role of the Committee is to monitor the implementation of the strategy and to assist in identifying solutions to any delays in implementation.


The committee meets twice yearly to discuss the progress report, prepared by Cosc, on the implementation of the strategy.  The information on progress is provided to Cosc by the key bodies identified in the strategy.  Observations on the report are requested by Cosc from the Regional Advisory Committees on Violence against Women, the National Steering Committee on Violence against Women and the National Steering Committee on Violence against Men prior to the Strategy Oversight Committee meeting and are then reported to the committee.


The committee noted that progress is continuing on the strategy actions but that resource issues continue to impact on the delivery time-frames.  The Committee requested the key implementing bodies to address activities that have fallen behind the indicative time-frames for completion.
