Ask and Act

WWA has been contracted by the Welsh Government to train the trainers to deliver the Ask and Act programme for Group 2 and 3 of the National Training Framework.

The Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015 ushered in significant changes. Ask and Act is one part of the new statutory obligations under the new Act.

What is Ask and Act?

    • Organisational duty to encourage relevant professionals to “Ask” potential victims in certain circumstances (targeted enquiry); and
    • to “Act” so that harm as a result of the violence and abuse is reduced

Two early adopter sites – Gwent & ABMU Health Board – to shape national roll-out

    • Involves communications, training, policy development, info sharing, referral pathways to specialist services, data collection & review

Accredited training to be developed and ‘train the trainer’ (TTT) model delivered to cascade to Groups 2 & 3 professionals

    • forms part of Welsh Government National Training Framework for violence against women, domestic  abuse and sexual violence
