10,000 Safer Lives Project exceeds target

This press release was published under the 2011 - 2016 Welsh government

The 10,000 Safer Lives Project, aiming to improve the multi-agency response to victims of domestic abuse in Wales, has exceeded its target. 
Friday 22 May 2015

The latest figures (April 2015) show more than 14,000 people feel safer, or are safer, as a result of work undertaken in Wales to tackle domestic abuse and sexual violence since October 2013.

Public Services Minister, Leighton Andrews AM said:

“All of the organisations who supported this project can rightly be proud of this achievement. The number of people who feel safer as a result of their work across Wales will be strengthened further as the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act is implemented.

“The Act, which received Royal Assent in April, is the first law of its kind in Europe. Its will improve the public sector response in Wales to violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence, and build on our work on 10,000 Safer Lives.”
