Research Project New Funding Launch, Cardiff
The Dewis/Choice Research Project is hosting a launch event to mark the award of extra funding, at the Angel Hotel, Cardiff on 19 February: 'Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse in Later Life'. £335,000 has been awarded by UK Portfolio to extend the research to other parts of the UK, and a number of presentations will explain how the research programme will be developed further with the support of this funding. Speakers will include project leader Sarah Wydall, Professor John Williams, Rebecca Zerk and the Older People's Commissioner for Wales. There will be a report on the completion of a new hand-book, Practitioners' Guidance, and the showing of an award winning short film dealing with LGB victim-survivor experience recently made as part of the project.
