Violence against women & domestic abuse services in Wales

A study examined violence against women, domestic abuse, and sexual violence in Wales, to inform the forthcoming Ending Violence Against Women and Domestic Abuse (Wales) Bill, implementation of the legislation, and future policy and funding decisions. The report said that there was a lack of robust data, but estimates showed that these were significant problems in Wales.

It mapped service provision across the country and made a wide range of recommendations.
