There is a recognition that there is a disproportionate impact on women and girls but that men and boys are also affected by these issues.

The Award recognises individuals or organisational innovation, achievement and commitment, in developing and maintaining projects, initiatives and solutions for victims and survivors of violence and abuse.

Closing date for applications is Monday 26 September 2022 (The successful nominee will be notified at the start of October 2022).
