International: start date given for Ireland’s domestic violence agency

An agency to tackle domestic, sexual and gender-based violence (DSGBV) in Ireland will be operating by the end of January, says justice minister Helen McEntee.

The new organisation will be responsible for providing support to services for victims and people at risk of DSGBV; reducing its prevalence; overseeing government strategies and plans; developing standards for funded services; monitoring compliance; planning, co-ordinating and monitoring the development of refuge accommodation; running public campaigns to raise awareness of DSGBV; and carrying out research to support development of future policies and programmes.

Creation of the agency was a commitment in Ireland’s national strategy for zero tolerance of DSGBV published last June.
