On 29 April 2015, the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Bill received Royal Assent and became an Act.

The Act aims to improve the way relevant authorities, that is the local authority, health boards (including Wales Ambulance Service Trust) and Fire and Rescue respond to abuse and violence.

Some of the things which the act will do are;

· to promote awareness and prevent, protect and support victims of gender-based violence, domestic abuse and sexual violence

· Working with victims to ensure that any work meet the needs of the public who they will support and will be accountable to ensure that it is delivered correctly.

· There will be a consistent approach across all organisations to ensure that there is quality service provision for people across Wales

Within Bridgend County Borough, organisations are working together to ensure that services will be shaped to meet individual needs. To help us, we would really appreciate if people could answer a few questions, this support will ensure that those who maybe a victim of violence against women, domestic abuse or sexual violence have the support and advice that they require whether they are male or female.

Closing date for the survey is Thursday 1st February 2018

We would like to thank you in advance for your support
