Agenda, the alliance for women and girls at risk hosted by the Young Foundation, was launched in January 2016. It now has over 70 members who have come together to campaign for change for women and girls at risk. Agenda believes society is failing to adequately protect and support women and girls who face the most extensive violence, abuse, trauma and inequality.
Agenda has also published research which reveals that 1.2 million women in England face ‘extensive’, physical and sexual abuse and violence as both children and adults. These women have very high levels of mental ill-health, disability, substance misuse, and many have been homeless. Agenda is calling for systems and services to be redesigned with women and girls at their heart. To find out more visit Agenda’s website weareagenda.org
