Back in July the First Minister for Wales updated us on the Welsh Government’s legislative programme and discussed the 8 Bills that will be introduced this year. One of those Bills was the Ending Violence against Women and Domestic Abuse (Wales) Bill. The First Minister for Wales, Carwyn Jones said, “We have been very clear about our duty to seek to protect the most vulnerable individuals and families. Everyone in Wales has the right to live in a safe community, free from violence and abuse. To achieve this, we need to tackle the enduring social problems of violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence. So, next June, we will introduce the ending violence against women and domestic abuse Bill to tackle all forms of violence against women and domestic abuse.” The Outreach Team will be holding a workshop in North Wales on: Wednesday 11 December 2013, 13:30 - 15:30 The National Assembly for Wales’ North Wales Office, North Wales Visitor Centre , Princes Park ,Princes Drive ,Colwyn Bay, Conwy, LL29 8PL The workshop will aim to help you understand how laws are made in Wales, and more importantly how you can have your say on the Ending Violence against Women and Domestic Abuse (Wales) Bill, when it is introduced, with useful hints and tips.
