Zero Tolerance for Domestic, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence

What we mean by Zero Tolerance

Zero Tolerance means realising that we have allowed gender based violence and abuse, and the attitudes and assumptions which underpin it, inflict misery on too many for too long.

The aim of the government's third national strategy is clear: Zero Tolerance of domestic, sexual and gender based violence in our communities.

The pillars on which it is built – Prevention, Protection, Prosecution and Policy co-ordination – recognise that is only through a society wide effort that we will achieve real change. Together, we can and must do everything in our power to bring about change and achieve Zero Tolerance.
