Today I am announcing the publication of the annual plan for 2024-2025, produced by Yasmin Kahn 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.

The Advisers undertook 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. I am grateful for all the work they do to support the delivery of our VAWADSV National Strategy and Blueprint.  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.
