On Friday 7th October men from Cadwyn, Cardiff Council and many other organisations walked a mile in high heels around the streets of Cardiff as part of the ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ campaign.
This campaign aimed to raise awareness of domestic violence against women and we were happy to see so many people, including men from the general public take part in this event.
Ryan Parry from Cadwyn who organised the event said ‘Cadwyn’s support of this event for the third year shows our commitment to end violence against women. It also shows the support of a number of other organisations across Cardiff. This is a serious issue which if ignored leads to catastrophic results on the lives of women and children suffering abuse from men.
This walk is all about raising the awareness of this issue but to also let our residents know that they do not need to suffer in silence and that we are here to assist where possible. We will be making this an annual event, so if anyone is interested in joining us next year or wants to get involved in shaping any of our other work that we do around Domestic Violence, please do not hesitate to contact us. ‘
If you have suffered or are suffering from domestic abuse Cadwyn can help you, please contact us on 029 2049 8898 or email@example.com.
