To create long-term sustainability, the coordinated response must incorporate new membership and consolidate and diversify its activities as local conditions dictate.  Extending the sector can take different forms by:

  • Bringing-in non-traditional partners (this will depend on the context, but may include agencies beyond the criminal justice and victim/survivor service sectors, such as men’s groups, faith groups/leaders, businesses);
  • Expanding service delivery mechanisms;
  • Replicating existing models that are successful;
  • Continuous monitoring, evaluation and training of staff that delivers services;
  • Using gender mainstreaming to ensure a gendered analysis of violence and related issues is incorporated into all areas of policy development; and
  • Sustained local, national and global advocacy with governments and institutions.
