Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Research Network Wales


The Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (DA&SV) Research Network Wales has been established by Dr Emily Underwood-Lee, George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling, and Dr Sarah Wallace, Welsh Institute for Health and Social Care  with support from PRIME Centre Wales.

The DA&SV research network is intended for anyone interested in setting the research agenda and extending the research base in relation to DA&SV in Wales. 

Dr Emily Underwood-Lee, who was behind the Forty Voices, Forty Years project with Welsh Women's Aid, said: “I am delighted to be able to be part of initiating the DA&SV Research Network for Wales. Wales has been a leading light in DA&SV practice and policy and we are keen to explore to develop work within the unique Welsh context with other researchers, practitioners and survivors.  I am particularly keen to continue to hear and learn from the many stories and voices within Wales in order to help us move towards a future free of gender based violence.”

The Network held two meetings of interest on 29th June and 2 July 2021. The meetings were attended by a range of key partners including representatives from the Welsh Government Violence Against Women Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (VAWDASV) team, DA&SV service providers, Regional VAWDASV teams, academics and other stakeholders.
