developing and sharing our evidence base

Strategic Plan

We are often asked about how we manage to achieve a trusting and lasting relationship with women that lead to such positive outcomes.

The effectiveness of how we work stems from our strong values; our robust evidence base; our innovation; our dedicated needs-led and person-centred experience.

Our services are often life-saving and have a long-term impact on women and children’s safety and self-empowerment.

Our Strategic Plan sets out the priorities we intend to deliver against over the next five years.

Annual Review

Every day of the year BSWA provides support to women and children across Birmingham and Solihull who are affected by domestic violence and abuse in all its forms.

Our Annual Reviews allow us a chance to reflect on all we have achieved in the past year, spot opportunities for any new projects and celebrate our staff and the women and children we have supported to go on to live safer lives free from the fear of abuse.

“Representing women, being their voice, sharing their story is a privilege. Our reports and our documents contain a lot of statistics, it’s the nature of the work that we do. But we also want to be sure to remind people that there are real women behind every one of those statistics.”

Research & Data

Making sure that women and children are offered the best and most appropriate support by us is key to ensuring women and children have safer, positive outcomes as a result. We ensure that we are always considering new theory and practice that is being developed across the specialist domestic violence and abuse support industry. We do this alongside our existent wealth of evidence-based knowledge gathered over our last 40 years of supporting women and children, reflected through our informed practice.
