Welsh Women's Aid Covid-19 'Bystander' Toolkit

Self-isolation and social distancing may increase violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence and have an impact on survivors’ safety and support networks. Now more than ever, it is vital that we understand violence and abuse and support the needs of survivors.

Welsh Women's Aid has developed a Bystander toolkit, consisting of specific advice and information for concerned neighbours, engaged volunteers and employers, journalists and others to ensure they can sa...fely raise awareness and signpost to support.
