"Our heartfelt thoughts go out to the family and friends of Sarah Everard today. Suzy Lamplugh's parents set up the Trust because they wanted to prevent anyone going through what they did when Suzy disappeared 35 years ago. Sarah's case sadly clearly demonstrates that not enough has changed to reduce the prevalence of violence against women and girls in society.

Suzy Lamplugh Trust campaigns for the right to be safe for everyone. We work with victims to lobby for systemic change in policy and legislation to reduce violence and aggression in society and ensure victims are better supported in seeking justice. In addition to our frontline support services available to victims, we also work through perpetrator intervention programmes to address and reduce perpetrator behaviours that have a high risk of violence and aggression.

Being subject to violence is never a victims' fault. Everyone has a right to be safe. It is clear that far more needs to be done to ensure that there is deep rooted systemic change across society as a whole."
