Welsh Women’s Aid National Conference – 29th November 2018

Future 40: Challenging and preventing violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence in Wales

Violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence are prevalent in all areas of Wales, as they are across the UK and the globe. They are not however, inevitable. They are preventable.

In our 40th year, Welsh Women’s Aid is looking forward to the future forty years with the aim of ending violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence.

The Welsh Women’s Aid National Conference will be an exciting opportunity to bring expertise, practice and policy making together to look at our commitments in Wales for prevention through education, empowerment and engagement that aim to challenge attitudes and behaviours across society. With presentations, workshops and panel discussions, this event will be a unique opportunity to hear from academics, experienced professionals and survivors to discuss the opportunities for stakeholders from across Wales to take ambitious action in the next forty years.
