Guidance on approaches to Promoting and Developing an understanding of Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2014


The revised Guidance on Approaches to Promoting and Developing an Understanding of Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2014 presents strategies for raising awareness among the general population, including victims and professionals and three specific population groups, namely people with disabilities, members of the Traveller Community and members of migrant communities.

The document, which was formerly the Communications paper, is informed by work and recommendations of the Public Awareness Sub-Committee (PASC) as agreed by the National Steering Committee for Violence Against Women. The Guidance has been restructured and revised recently by PASC and now includes information for those engaging in awareness raising of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence among people with disabilities.

The purpose of the document is to provide guidance to organisations and professionals on suggested approaches to promote and develop an understanding and recognition of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence.
