Communities are often the first to know about violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence however the way we respond isn’t always helpful. The Ask Me scheme wants to change that.
Welsh Women’s Aid wants to help end abuse by supporting communities to give a better response to survivors but also to be proactive in finding ways to challenge unhelpful myths, attitudes and stereotypes that enable and normalise abuse.
They do this by providing free training and ongoing support that helps community members to start conversations about abuse, know where help is available, share their knowledge with others and to know how to respond to anyone who shares their experiences of abuse.
After the course, community members are free to spend as much or as little time on activism around this, all that is asked is that they fill in a short questionnaire once a month to let Welsh Women’s Aid know what they’ve been up to. To register for a course you need to be 18 or over and live, study, work or volunteer in a funded area (see “Who is eligible?” below). Please note, they cannot accept applications from outside Wales.
