Public Health Scotland commissioned this report from the Improvement Service. It gathers insights from a range of violence against women and girls (VAWG) organisations and women’s organisations which work with minority ethnic women. The report aims to give insight into what is needed from VAWG policy and practice to improve the lives of minority ethnic women and girls and address the inequalities they face as victims and survivors of violence and abuse.
