Working in partnership with Gwent Police, our Assertive Outreach project works across Gwent to provide support to victims of domestic abuse at the point of crisis. We have support workers based within police headquarters who are able to respond to domestic abuse call-outs, enabling a co-ordinated response to incidents of domestic abuse.
Local Partnership Working
We work closely with agencies across Gwent to support women and children who have experienced domestive abuse or sexual violence.
