Acknowledgements for the Intervention Initiative

Abstract art

This toolkit was commissioned by Public Health England (PHE). Its development was funded by PHE and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol). We are grateful to Dr Justin Varney from PHE for his support.

The toolkit began life as an extension of the “Get SAVI” project developed by Scottish Women’s Aid and we are particularly grateful to Scottish Women’s Aid and to the team who developed their programme, for allowing us to use many ideas from Get SAVI.
