Home Shouldn’t be a Place of Fear
Domestic Abuse, Sexual Violence and Coercive Control Campaign
At Calan DVS, our vision is to work towards safe and resilient communities free from domestic violence and abuse. To achieve this vision, we understand the importance of working with and supporting our partner organisations as well promoting the campaigns of the Welsh Government.
This includes the recently launched ‘Home shouldn’t be a place of fear’ campaign which aims to let those at risk of domestic abuse, sexual violence and coercive control during this time, know that help is still available 24 hours a day, every day, via Live Fear Free.
Welsh Government also wants to reach anyone still in a position to help those who may be at an increased risk, including family, friends and service providers, also volunteers.
The campaign has already gained extensive support from a number of key figures including Welsh West End actor Luke Evans (check out his video here).
Getting in Touch
The guidelines for getting in touch as outlined by the Welsh Government in their communications to support organisations and the wider community are as follows:
There are a number of ways to get in touch with the Live Fear Free helpline and seek help, advice and support – by telephone 0808 8010800, live chat, text or email visit our website for information.
The campaign includes advertising on TV (Sky AdSmart and S4C), regional and community radio, Spotify, social media and digital channels.
