Welsh Women’s Aid is the national umbrella body in Wales working to end violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence. For over four decades we’ve provided support, leadership and representation for the national network of specialist services in Wales. Providing a voice for specialist services and the survivors and families they work with helps us advocate to inform and transform laws, policy and practice to benefit survivors of abuse.Welsh Women’s Aid is a feminist organisation, and our values are founded on commitments to human rights, anti-discrimination and freedom from oppression. Our approach is founded on the following value-base:
We are feminist and value diversity of lived experiences – we amplify diverse voices, recognising that identities and life experience impact on experiences of abuse and access to support, safety and justice. We advocate ending violence against women and girls alongside the liberation of all women and girls from multiple oppressions like sexism, racism, classism, homophobia, ageism, ableism, transphobia, to attain social justice for all.
We promote integrity – we are accountable, and place survivors’ voices and their lived experiences central to our work. We encourage respect, transparency and learning from experience, we challenge misuse of power and promote social responsibility in all we do.
We collaborate – we work with survivors, specialist services, other organisations, individuals and communities, to capacity-build services and to evidence and deliver what works in preventing violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence.
We empower – we advocate a rights-based approach so that all women and children can achieve their full potential, and we promote services led by and for women/minoritised groups as being vital to meeting needs and to achieving social, economic and political liberation from patriarchy, racism, and other oppressions.
We transform – we are committed to challenging inequalities and discrimination, to combining high-quality services with activism for social change, and building a movement that ends violence against women and girls and liberates women and girls from multiple and intersecting oppressions to benefit everyone.
To achieve our vision we will focus on:
A disappointing & shortsighted decision. 1 in 3 women experience violence or sexual abuse in their lifetime – in Wales, that equates to around 530,441 women. Domestic homicide reviews can reveal where opportunities for support could have been offered. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-…
