Library closures - 13 and 14 August 2022

Due to the extreme heat and high temperatures inside, some of our libraries will be closed on Saturday and Sunday (13 and 14 August). They include Peckham, Dulwich, John Harvard, Camberwell and Brandon. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.

Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy 2019 to 2024

This is Southwark’s first Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy and sets out our priorities for tackling and preventing gender violence (including men and boys) going forward until 2024. Gendered violence in all its forms is unacceptable. It affects all communities and has an incalculable impact on the lives of those individuals affected, their families and the wider community. Tackling gender violence is therefore ‘everybody’s business’.

This strategy builds on our current Domestic Abuse Strategy to include all areas of gendered violence, aligning with current national and regional strategies.
