Tower Hamlets council launches VAWG plan

Just over a year ago, we launched LIFT with an online petition asking Tower Hamlets police and council to end the arrests of women involved in street-based prostitution in the borough, and to address prostitution as a form of violence against women and girls. We are delighted that tomorrow, Tower Hamlets will officially launch its Violence Against Women & Girls Plan, including a specific commitment to ensure women involved in prostitution are able to access appropriate services.

We will be attending and presenting at tomorrow’s launch conference, along with other Tower Hamlets residents and professionals.
