Wales Violence Against Women Action Group

The Wales Violence Against Women Action Group is a coalition of organisations drawn down from a broad spectrum that came together in 2009 in order to share experience and skills, with the aim of tackling violence against women in Wales through raising awareness, challenging attitudes and pressing for change in government policy.

In 2009 we published a comprehensive report making the case for a strategy for a national strategy to tackle violence against women - Violence Against Women: Why an Integrated Strategy in Wales?

We monitor the effectiveness of the Integrated Strategy, through our annual Scorecard marking the Welsh Government’s progress on the recommendations in our original report, Steps to Safety. Our second report was launched on 25 November 2013.

Our most recent focus has been to work to ensure that the forthcoming Violence Against Women (Wales) Bill makes a real difference to the lives of women affected by any form of VAW, wherever they live in Wales.
