The seventh progress report on the National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence 2010-2014 was considered by the Strategy Oversight Committee at its meeting on the 16th of October 2013.


The committee noted general good progress in implementing activities and welcomed the improvement in the number of activities deemed completed. The committee also noted that while there was a small increase in the numbers of activities having fallen behind schedule, work is underway to bring those activities to completion. 


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 Health Service Executive 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 progress report is prepared by Cosc from information provided by the key State bodies identified in the strategy.  Observations on the report from the National Steering Committee on Violence against Women and the National Steering Committee on Violence against Men are reported to the Oversight Committee and incorporated into the report where necessary.
