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.
