Welsh Women’s Aid calls for no cuts to refuge services across Wales

  • Over half of refuge services in Wales report facing proposed cuts to their services next year
  • 284 women were turned away from refuge services in Wales last year because of a lack of space.

Today, on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Welsh Women’s Aid calls for lifesaving refuge services’ funding in Wales to be protected by government and public authorities, so that women and children can live free from violence and be supported to recover from abuse. This should be accompanied by sufficient resources and a sustainable funding model for refuge services so that all regions of Wales have capacity to meet demand.

Our #AskMe pilot in Wales does just that (led by local specialist services), encourages community discussion, increases knowledge & understanding about domestic/sexual abuse & help available, & expands ways women can get help #ChangethatLasts twitter.com/EleriB/status/…
