Welsh Women’s Aid is the national charity in Wales working to end domestic abuse and all forms of violence against women. We are a federation of specialist organisations in Wales (working as part of a UK network of services) that provide lifesaving services to survivors of violence and abuse – women, men, children, families – and deliver a range of innovative preventative services in local communities.
We have been at the forefront of shaping coordinated community responses and practice in Wales since we were established in 1978. We do this by campaigning for change and providing advice, consultancy, support and training to deliver policy and service improvements for survivors, families and communities.
We also deliver services including the Welsh Government funded Live Fear Free Helpline, a National Training Service, refuge support and advocacy services in Colwyn Bay and Wrexham, and the national Children Matter preventative project supporting children and young people in every local authority in Wales. Our success is founded on making sure the experiences and needs of survivors are central to all we do.
Speaking on @itvwalesnews this evening about coercive control and identifying abuse. If you are worried about your relationship or a friend/family member/colleague, call the Live Fear Free Helpline on 0808 80 10 800 for 24/7 help and advice pic.twitter.com/yCYWAYjhMc
