Jane Hutt, Minister for Social Justice
Today I am announcing the publication of the annual plan for 2023-2024, produced by Yasmin Khan and Johanna Robinson, the National Advisers for VAWDASV, which I have approved on behalf of the Welsh Government.
The plan is delivered in line with the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015. Section 22 of the Act requires the national advisers to prepare an annual plan setting out their ambitions for the forthcoming financial year. I have recently reviewed the annual plan and agreed to its publication.
I thank the advisers for undertaking significant stakeholder engagement during their preparations for delivering the annual plan, ensuring the voices of those who most need access to support and services are heard. The plan demonstrates the National Advisers' commitment to supporting Welsh Government’s ambition to make Wales the safest place in Europe to be a woman and to eliminate all forms of gender-based violence.
