Jane Hutt MS, Deputy Minister and Chief Whip
I am pleased to announce that the Welsh Government’s fourth annual report, as required by the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015 (“the Act”), has been laid in the Senedd.
The report, which covers the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 describes progress made towards achieving the purpose of the Act and the objectives set out in the Act’s accompanying national strategy.
The report lays out the significant progress during 2019-20, such as the continuation of the very effective “This is not Love. This is Control” communications campaign; training in Ask and Act for almost 2000 more public sector workers; and the publication of a non-specialist guide for public services working with adult perpetrators.
