WWA response to HMIC report on domestic abuse

Although much of it makes for stark and concerning reading, Welsh Women’s Aid welcomes today’s report released by HMIC ‘Everyone’s Business: Improving the Police Response to Domestic Abuse’.

For many years Welsh Women’s Aid have remained concerned by some Police responses to domestic abuse, which has often been treated as a second class crime. This situation has eroded victim confidence and led to very real issues of safety for women and children escaping abuse.
