Glasgow Violence Against Women Partnership
Glasgow Violence Against Women Partnership, (GVAWP), is a city-wide multi-agency partnership concerned with preventing and eradicating all form of violence against women. The GVAWP has a role in supporting the delivery of Equally Safe, the Scottish Governments strategy to tackle violence against women and girls in Glasgow.
