Violence​ Against Women, Domestic Abuse And Sexual Violence

The Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act received Royal Assent on 29 April 2015. It is a landmark law, the first of its kind in the UK.

Those experiencing violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence access a range of public services for many reasons. Public Services provide a gateway to support for victims and opportunities for early intervention and prevention.

The National Training Framework offers training to strengthen the response provided across Wales to those experiencing these issues.  Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service are fully committed to the Ask & Act 2015.  All members of the Fire & Rescue Service have received training to raise awareness and understanding of such violence and abuse.  Our training plan will regularly be reviewed to expand on the number of staff receiving the various levels or training.  

Working with partner agencies we aim to stop Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse And Sexual Violence.
