Question

I would like to know:
What budget has your local authority set aside for the costs associated with commissioning Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) services? This might include staff costs, legal costs, cost of market engagement events etc. Please supply the answer as total budget for the financial year 2018/19.

I would be interested in any information held by your organisation regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify particular files or documents and that is it the department’s responsibility to provide information I require. If you need any further clarification, please contact me by email.

Answer

The Comhairle did not make a funding bid for the Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) services – 2017-2020 and have no costs with commissioning (VAWG) services.  The Comhairle do fund a local organisation to delivery services for women.
