Violence Prevention Unit have published their latest research on Bystander Experiences of Domestic Violence and Abuse during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This study, delivered in partnership with the University of Exeter, and funded by Public Health Wales, included a survey and interviews with members of the public to better understand the experiences and behaviours of bystanders to domestic violence and abuse during a period of social restrictions. Whilst implemented on a small scale, this study was the first of its kind and provides new insights into bystander experiences during a global pandemic.

This session will include a presentation by the lead researcher, and a panel discussion with representatives from Welsh Government, Welsh Women’s Aid and Public Health Wales.
